Hello,

I've wandered over from my typical realm on the stamp forum as that's my primary hobby. I have quite a few coins and am just beginning to dive into things. Amid the boxes were four ancient looking coins and so I've spent the night on the various coin sites figuring out and identifying these as best I could. That being said, I did a bunch of reading on identifying fakes, particularly ones that are cast (sand cast?) and I'm thinking the three bronze ones most likely are given it looks like cast bubbles are present. The silver Pegasus one I can't really tell for sure. In any event, I just wanted to double-check with the experts here before I label as fake and toss into a bin. Thanks in advance!!

All design details very mushy, as is typical for cast fakes made for the tourist industry.

Sadly none of these are real, typical tourist fakes.

Forgot one that was in a different box. Probably the same outcome but it's from a different collection so I'll double check here.

I looked at them too quickly; echizento is right.

Oh wow, ok nice! When I had been doing some research earlier, this was the closest thing I could find. Am I on the right track?

Super appreciated!
