Without even looking at the coin, I am very skeptical about the circumstances surrounding your post. This is a five-figure coin. See, for example, this one currently at auction. Everybody who has one knows what it is, has the provenance going back five auctions, and knows which millionaires owned it before him. If it were real, you'd be here showing it off, saying, "look what I got at Such-and-Such auction!" not asking if a piece you found in a group lot, at a flea market, or at e-Bay is real.
Agreed; if you have to ask about a Tranquillina imperial, it's fake.
Thankfully, her provincial bronzes seem to be trending downward strongly.
My po' boy's Latin-inscribed Tranquillina, Deultum Thrace, less than $30
I have done a bit of research about this coin and know that if real could be worth a 5 figure sum.
I didn't buy it from any anywhere, I found it.
Not a coin collector at all and was just interested in finding out more about whether it real or a fake, since I don't live anywhere near a coin specalsit.
