    Possible Fake Coin

    Thanks for your observations. I think that I'm satisfied that it is genuine. The Auction House where I purchased it employ coin experts to authenticate lots I don't think that a fake could have slipped through. I was bidding in competition with another online bidder and paid almost twice the Auction House estimate which I thought appeared low. Which probably means that they made allowance for the clipped segments which I hadn't.

    I'm trying to work out how to convert and attach the obverse.

    Sorry I don't know how to do a link either. I withdrew my eBay add after I doubted its authenticity. I will try to work out how to reduce the file.

    It is the weight I am concerned about it seems to me the coin is not heavy enough to be genuine.

    Possible Fake Coin

    I purchased a gold tremissis , Maurice Tiberius from a local Auctioneer approximately 2 years ago, I just accepted that it was a genuine coin. I decided to sell it on and advertised it on eBay. Someone queried its authenticity which prompted me to weigh it. It weighs between 1.1 and 1.2 grams. All the examples I find online weigh between 1.4 and 1.5 grams. Have I purchased a fake coin or could it be genuine?
