I am sure you are right.

... This looks like a die match ...
Looking at C. A. Marinescu & C. Lorber, The "Black Sea" Tetradrachm Hoard, in Paunov & FIlipova, eds., HPAKLEOYΣ ΣΩTHPOΣ THAΣIΩN. Studia in honorem Iliae Prokopov (Veliko Turnovo, 2012), pp. 197-259, you will find even more (numbers 267 to 276 on page 211)

This type has been produced with a very small number of dies only.

You have to look at the rim (edge) of the coin to see the cuts in person.
Which you can't, as the the coin is encapsuled.
Another reason for not buying coins in coffins.

I was considering Julia Domna or Faustina Minor. The text just don't make sense to me.

Perhaps because it is a provincial coin with Greek, not Latin legends?

Hello everyone,
I (again) need your knowledge.
I spotted a coin recently sold (Vespasian. AD 69-79. Æ Dupondius), this piece is encapsulated via NGC which indicated on its certificate: "edge cuts" ... what does this expression mean? ???

Thank you in advance for your knowledge

I joint the copy of the certificat box, if it can help  :(

To my knowledge Bulgari worked with a most respected coin seller and I never saw any fake coins with their jewellry.
OK - they charged decent prices  :) - but the coins were genuine - as in this case

But I don’t know if this is a genuine Bulgari jewellery. If it’s a counterfeit Bulgari, do you think it’s genuine just for the coin itself?

Virgil,

Unfortunately I don’t know of any good books dedicated to Ghaznavid coinage.

Mitchiner’s large and expensive The World of Islam covers a few Ghaznavid coins. 

Michael Broome’s A Handbook of Islamic Coins (Spink) is a good book to get.  It is not a catalogue but a general guide covering Islamic coins from the beginning to the 20th century in just over 200 pages.  And it is softcover and relatively cheap. The first four pages of Chapter 3 - Invasion from the East - are dedicated to the Ghaznavids.  Plus it briefly covers Samanid and Qarakhanid coinage, which are often found in northern Afghanistan. 

For my very few Ghaznavid coins I used a couple of collection websites:

The Ghaznavid page of COININDIA
http://coinindia.com/galleries-ghaznavid.html

and Numista
https://en.numista.com/catalogue/ghaznavid_dynasty-1.html

to get the general identification and then confirmed/refined identification through Zeno.ru

coś ufundować i przyjechać na uroczyste otwarcie połączone z kolejnymi igrzyskami.

Może Najjaśniejszy Pan coś fundnął i wysłał swojego przedstawiciela? Bo w takie z głupia frant nagłe podkuszenie urzędnika nie bardzo chce mi się wierzyć. Główna zasada urzędnicza to ciągnąć stare jak długo się da, chyba że opieprzą.
