Who's the seller ? weight and diameter please.
@Andres2. I believe it to be genuine, but weight would be most helpful.
could be genuine, but there is no way I would buy it from just the photo alone. I'd want to see it in hand first.
It's a seller you don't know. There isn't enough info to make a decision. You're having misgivings. I wouldn't buy it.
It's not like Nero denarii are rare if you're not in the market for a specific type. They are pricey only because there is a much higher demand for them than for antoniniani of Volusian or Faustina I. On any given day the well-heeled collector could buy a hundred of them. No exaggeration.
You'll never be happy with this coin. Save your money and watch auctions and v-coins. You'll find one you can be happy with if you're patient.
Lots of them. This is just a partial list of retail dealers I trust and in no particular order. Many (but not all) will have coins of Nero in stock at any time:
Marc Breitsprecher, Classical Numismatist
Victors Imperial Coins
Forum Ancient Coins
London Ancient Coins
Romae Aeternae Numismatics
Making a living faking a $50 coin would seem unlikely, but like Josey Wales said "dying aint much of a living" They are out there ...I bought a $20 Trajan denarius
that I didn't look at it real close(because he is so common) later found out under magnification that it was cast. I was shocked!
