    Hi Guys

    I recently started to collect ancient coins and specifically ancient Persian coins. I like to know whether these 2 coins are genuine or not. Thanks for help

    I do not render opinions of authenticity as I am not an expert. Rather, I do a lot of on-line research and coin book research to gather information to determine authenticity. I ensure that I know the coin, and I know/trust the Seller.

    Some of my Siglos for comparisons:

    Didn't you ask about one of these coins before?

    Well, isn’t that interesting. When you open up his name, @Erhan in the original thread from Jun-11, 2019, it comes up as CoinTalk Error... I wonder what we have here?

    We have a user who was banned back then because he created another account after his previous account was banned. His previous name, before Erhan, was "Arash"...

    Perhaps the Moderators consider a prophylaxis...
