The E-Sylum: Volume 13, Number 21, May 23, 2010, Article 30

FEATURED WEB SITE: FAKE ANCIENT COIN REPORTS

This week's Featured Web Site is Dr. Ilya Prokopov's Fake Ancient Coin Reports - Forum Ancient Coins' Services for the Classical Numismatics Community. I discovered this site through Ken Peters' bibliography of the Counterfeit Coins of England (see the book review in this E-Sylum issue).

FAKE Alexander the Great silver tetradrachm

Alexander the Great, Alexander III, silver tetradrachm
AR tetradrachm, Susa?

Wreath in left field and DI under throne appear at Susa mint only, but with additional objects in left field. Style is completely wrong for official issue as well as for a Celtic imitation. Sold in German Ebay in Oct. 2005 for 118.
