    ceaae coin copy

    Hi all
    I'm more of a reader than a poster but i found this coin while hunting this week and i really dont know what it is except for a copy of something.
    on the top of the coin it says ceaae on the reverse it says copy. just wanting to know what the ceaae would mean. i really couldn't find anything
    anywhere. this is the first time posting pictures so I'm not sure how they will turn out

    thanks for your help

    Here is one similar obverse on eBay presented as a 430-425 BC coin from Sicily. Yours is a copy of course.

    Re: ceaae coin copy

    i found some more about my copy coin

    thanks to all that looked

    This Gela tetradrachm has been the subject of more inquiries to me than any other 'coin' since I have started this site. This particular copy was produced as an advertisement for a book on Ancient Greece and was sent to thousands of addresses glued to a paper ad.

    I know this is an old thread , but, I have questions.
    I have two of these coins. As good condition as the one shown by Bigcypresshunter. In the link, I can't find any info on this coin. The link opens on page 6. I've looked on other pages, also and found nothing.

    I know mine are copies, but, what are they made of. Is this true; "This particular copy was produced as an advertisement for a book on Ancient Greece and was sent to thousands of addresses glued to a paper ad."

    edit: I guess the link did not work in my post. It is the link, and image, posted by bigcypresshunter.

    Its an old thread try this. Any idea's on what these are? | Repro Gela tetradrachm - Coin Community Forum

    Dr. Ilya Prokopov's Fake Ancient Coin Reports - Replica Marks/Gela Tetradrachm

    The center indentation (red) was to hold a blob of glue where it was glued to the paper or book. I cant remember but these may have been given away with Readers Digest.
