This is a modern forgery. I have the same reverse die with three different obverse dies, including this one. I'll try to post photos later tonight. It may also be published in the IAPN Bulletin on Counterfeits.

Just did this real quick.

Also, see IAPN BOC Vol 13, no. 2 (1988).

From the many small flan crack on the edge, is this most likely a pressed coin?

According to my experience,those small flan cracks are seen on normal ancient coins as well as on forgeries.Sometimes we are really confused...
