Worth buying at that price!

Don't splash out just yet. If you can live without that gorgeous scratch down his neck you can grab a bargain at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/384097875584

"No returns accepted" and not posting by special delivery.

One should be deeply concerned by anyone selling an expensive and rare item under these terms!

He has got a feedback from this seller. This seller has sold an item to someone with his exact feedback rating for £10.50

Could be just a coincidence.

Some quite sophisticated fakes from this seller I think.

Looking through his collection of items what strikes me is the weird orange deposit/corrosion on most of them - coins of different periods and countries!

Those roman coins look really nasty - proper cruds, barely even noticable as coins even

Saw this one on ebay.uk a PCGS slabbed coin graded AU-55. Also included a screen shot of the PCGS  photo. I think this coin is badly over graded and think F-15 would be a more accurate grading as there is considerable wear on the obverse that cannot be putdown to a light strike. The reverse although appears to be less worn is not anywhere near to AU grades. Again I do not thing these professional graders are producing a constant product. I know you should buy the coin not the assigned grade but new collectors can be badly miss lead by this sort of miss grading. A PCGS AU-55 grading example is included for comparison.

Agreed. I'd struggle to give that obverse even VF, though the reverse - as so often for this series - is a grade or so higher.
