Hello,

These are for sale at a local coin shop. I would like some opinion on authenticity.

FLAMINIA, L. FLAMINIUS CILO (106-105 BC): DENARIUS

Porcia, M. Porcius Cato quinario

They are priced at 50 each. This shop has low buy back rates and low sell rates. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I don't know if I will be able to weigh them outside of the flips.

Under plastic and no weights but I see no issues with these coins. Look genuine to me. I have dealt with quite few of both over the year and that little quinarius of Cato often has the raised part of the face worn like that.

] I agree - and the price is fair as well.

I might buy the flaminia, but I think the porcia is too worn. I'll take another look this week.
Thanks!

Here's the flaminia denario out of the flip. It weighs 3.82 g.
