Follis, Maximianus, little dubious


Nathaniel N2:
Saw this coin go up for sale. Price seems incredibly high, pictures look a little suspect. What do you think?

Looks like a cast fake. There are raised casting bubbles, especially noticeable on the obverse, and the hair on the bust is also a giveaway - partly filled in due to the casting process, and fully silvered despite the more charitable explanation of the filling in being due to wear.

Nathaniel N2:
Agreed. I reported the sale of fake goods. Good to have confirmation.
