    that is one great looking coin, to see if it is a fake look at the side of the coin and if there is a thin raised line running the length of the side of the coin than it would have been poured from a mold making it a fake, if it doesn't have a thin raised line then the coin would have been punched by a die like all coins are, but even if it doesn't have that line it still has the possibility to be fake, get a grading company to look at it to be certain.

    Thanks SS, my eyes hurt from looking at all those roman coins

    Those Romans were pretty prolific with those coins, so many are nearly identical.

    I glad that someone that is familiar with these came along cause I am out of my league here,
    but it was fun and I learned something new
