    Would be nice if the opening post coin was real. But looks fishy to me. There have been floods of "rare" fake Indo-Greeks coming from Pakistan the last decade. I'd guess this is one.

    @THCoins.....I do agree but didn't feel experienced enough in these types to state it...The legend, although seeming to follow the CI example, is very crude and the overall look of the coin just doesn't sit well.

    The edge of the left side of the flan on the bottom image looks a little off to me, but it’s difficult to judge for certain from photos.
