This coin weighs 2.2g and is 22mm in diameter. Please let me know if any of you spot a fake in this coin.

I'm not certain on the siliqua but the rest are what I like to call "horrifyingly genuine".

All of the coins I posted today all seem to either have sharply detailed shinier surfaces (heavy cleaning perhaps) or are underweight. I suspect some of these coins I posted today are crystallized. What exactly do you mean by "horrifyingly genuine"?

Yes, I was referring to the significant environmental damage. It would be difficult to fake.
