Gerhard M:
Very good evening !

@Tanit: This is a contemporary imitation , even if you donĀ“t want to believe it.

This is NO AUTENTIC ROMAN COIN from the fourth century !

Best regards
Gerhard

Tanit:
This is NO AUTENTIC ROMAN COIN. Ok.
This is not a contemporary imitation.
This is a barbaric imitation like the one attached

Arados:
Contemporary imitations were made at the same time as official coins or shortly after the official coins went in to circulation. Many contemporary imitations are convincing but the majority would not fool any experienced collector.

I would describe your first coin as being a barbarous imitation.

I'm sorry I misunderstood 'contemporary imitation': I understood current fake. So I agree and I apologize to mauseus and Pekka K for having contradicted them.
