It is an interesting site, but to be honest, most if not all coins produced in Serbia and pictured on Pauls site, will not catch out the experienced eye. I am in possession of 4 or 5 of these coins and in the hand they are even less convincing and bear no resemblance whatsoever to authentic coins. pauls site is good for the beginner, but as he rightly says, pick a dealer who will give an unconditional guarantee and a sound returns policy and you cannot go far wrong.

This thread should be retitled "Fake ancients." "Ancient fakes" are something else entirely:

Someone is selling this group on eBay as reproductions:



They are very good style and dangerous imitations.
