The coin first picture is currently for sale by an anction house.
The coin for sale is from the same dies as my coin from my black cabinet.
Both have the same defects, pearls etc. but different centering.
I suspected mine to be a cast
fake, because of the pearls, soft details like hair, casting defects but the other coin with different centering have all of them, too.
Are they transfer die fakes
and the defects are in the die because the dies were made due to casting?
Does the Cycle at the reverse
show the flan
shape of the host?
The cycle is the same on mine and the coin for sale which prooves that it is not from striking but in the dies.
