and gets good prices

IMHO either a fake collector or someone who thinks he knows better

It's already in the fake reports:

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

He currently seems to sell his "black cabinet" and gets good prices as the coins are sold with real old tickets

A new type (a correction!) for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 18, 2.5g
obv. AV KAI CE. - CEVHROC
       Laureate head r.
rev. NIK-OPOLI-TWN PROC IC
       Artemis, in girded double chiton, quiver over l. shoulder, stg. frontal, head l., holding in
       both hands a short torch.
 ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1360, pl.XV, 12 (same die)
       b) Varbanov 2500
       c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2020) No. 8,14.28.1 corr. (same dies)
coll. Hoeft

This type was called "Selene, crescent on her shoulder, holding in ech hand a shotrt torch(?)". But here the objekt over her l. shoulder has a knob atop, unusually for a crescent, but well possible for a quiver.

Best regards

Identification Help / Re: Coin with countermarks ID
« Last post by dadangus on Today at 04:05:19 am »
one of the reasons I love Forum Ancient Coins is the extraordinary sharing of knowledge and opinions all given freely and generously .
I know each time I log on I discover how little I know just by browsing these questions and answers. I am fascinated and humbled at the same time . I have always had a surge in curiosity with countermarked coins .Perhaps because it is inescapable evidence that the coin was handled more than once. 
Thank you to everyone who  makes my educational experience such a pleasure .
