    Hey, welcome to Coin Talk. What I said was that the members of this group (these guys) are very knowledgeable and can help you out. What you have shown seem to be modern copies. Where are you, I'm in California.

    With my limited knowledge, I would say fake, but wait awhile and others will answer also.

    I wouldn't condemn the last group immediately.

    From my experience, your friend is more likely to have all fake coins than mostly fake and some genuine.

    The big ones are supposed to be native Arabian imitations of Athens tetradrachms, and the smaller one is a silver coin of Himyar. I dont see immediate fault with them, but again, it seems unlikely that you friend would have a bunch of bad tourist fakes and a handful of fairly valuable genuine ones.

    They could be ancient barbarous copies of Greek coins. I am no expert in that area but I would be reluctant to say they were modern copies meant to fool today's collectors. This is an area that needs the expertise of experience numismatists well versed in barbarous copies.

    That being said, I wouldn't mind having one of those big honkers.

    May I suggest you try "Arabian imitation of Athenian tetradrachma bronze. I see a resemblance with Liyan.

    This one is from the Himyarite kingdom, and are usually not that expensive. It looks oke.

    If you want an opinion on the six silver coins, it's best to:
    1) make a clear photograph of each coin
    2) photograph both sides
    3) provide a diameter per coin
    4) provide a weight per coin
