Nice style for a repro. Was it sold as such, or was the seller trying to pass it off as genuine?
The seller had other coins which appeared to be correctly attributed, but this one was listed as:
"Cleopatra Thea & Her Son, Antiochus VIII Coin - Queen of Syria 125-121 BC I don't have any information on this coin apart from my own research online, see below. I have a collection of coins that I am selling but I have to research first to find out who is on the face of the coin & description of the back so please check my other items out as they appear."
I translated it as: "I know this is a fake, but I'm being deliberately vague in the hope that someone thinks it is genuine."
Yes, the New York "gallery." fake really is bizarre Bob.
Thinking of getting a Claudius denarius as I know I'll never afford a genuine.
Good luck with the Claudius denarious @travelcoin. I guess that the reasonable looking fake is as near as we can get to the "out of reach" coins.
For a fake it's not a bad looking piece.
It feels quite good in the hand @echizento, but not quite right. It didn't cost much, so I was happy enough to pay what I did for it.
