Hi All

I came across a coin of antiochus I and am curious to know if it is authentic. it has a soft and soapy surface and the metal looks a bit off to me. but I like to know what other think.

The coin looks fine to me. I'm curious why every coin you post you think is fake?

I am inclined to agree with echizento.
Color and texture like quite OK to me.

Just to be sure,
Check for very even thickness, very even thickness may indicate fake.
Check very accurately for diameter in several places.
Photograph the edge in a few places and post.
