Crusader coin recently sold at one of the major auction .
« on: October 06, 2021, 11:00:20 pm »
Fake coin from the fake coins seller on eBay, recently sold at one of the major auction houses as Antioch Raymond Roupen Anonymous Gate series . Everything is wrong with this coin - the style, the shape of the flan and the weight 2.5 g. , which is three times heavier than all known coins of this type
First coin is from the auction, second from eBay ( uncleaned , with fake green patina) , third coin from eBay, same obverse dies , but coin made in silver.

The first two coins in the original post have the same flan - undoubtedly either casts, or the same coin with different patina applied.
