Rev: CONCORDIA AVG, Concordia seated left holding patera and cornucopia
Ref: None. Fantasy Coin

Note: This cast is very interesting as the obverse is a die link to the Slavey piece with Apollini Sancto reverse. This example is a base metal product and not made by Slavey, so someone is taking Slavey's work, creating casts from the dies and making new pieces. Thus, all sorts of invalid obverse/reverse combinations may be found, depending on how prolific this forger is/was.
