    Fake or real Roman coin? What year/era? Shows silver on my AT Pro

    I bought an old tool box last weekend yard saling. I went through it and came across a couple of old coins. Not sure if they are real or fake. Anyone know what these are? Year/era minted? Click image for larger version.

    The silver coin looks to be quite genuine. The strange thing is that it reminds me of the lettering of this coin: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces37701.html, but it's design matches very alike with this coin: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces55360.html

    The bronze coin also looks very genuine, but I couldn't find that coin.

    I'm gonna say that the coins other than the dime could definitely maybe be real. Nice find.

    Maybe it's the photos but for me the silver is a fake and the bronze one doesn't look good either
    Sorry to say that

    I agree, they look cast to me.

    Correction

    The silver coin seems to be Hellenistic - Indian, likely Amynthas:

    I have my doubts that it is genuine.

    I believe the attribution of the reverse image will read:

    Hope it's the real deal but there were some replica coins a few yrs. ago put out by Publishers Clearing House or some such. Good luck.

    Granted, whether or not these items are replicas or fantasy pieces is one thing to ascertain.
    However, in that research process one also has the opportunity to learn what the object represents and therefore gain knowledge of history.
