Caracalla - Plated antoninianus purporting to be aureus20 viewsPlated Caracalla antoninianus, passed off as an aureus.

ANTONINVS PIVS AVG GERM, radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right.
P M TR P XVIII COS IIII P P, Jupiter, naked, standing right, holding thunderbolt and sceptre.
Plated version of RIC 258a; Cohen 279.
The "gold" plating has peeled off at numerous places on the obverse and reverse, revealing the bronze or billon core.

Sent to wildwinds for identification, March 2020.

No genuine gold coin was struck for Caracalla with this reverse image for this bust type.
This bronze or billon antoninianus, has been plated by someone, in order to deceive an inexperienced buyer.

Elagabalus, Sidon26 viewsI am now the unfortunate owner of two fake Elagabalus Cart of Astarte coins. I bought the first one a year ago and knew there was something off about it. But just recently I got this other one and didn’t inspect it close enough before buying (only $25 on eBay ... go figure right?) when it arrived in the mail I compared it to my other and what do you know identical! The green patina on it is very powdery and comes off easy. The work on its surface is quite believable, I thought, so I didn’t think about it until it arrived.
