Fake Indo-Greek Philoxenos Drachm

A word of caution to fellow collectors. A very deceptive forgery of Philoxenos Drachm is up for bidding at a very popular international bidding site. This forgery was noted by Pankaj Tandon on his CoinIndia website here:

This coin is die identical to the specimen Pankaj encountered.

Thank you, Bushan. It is fortunate that fakers are still stupid enough to give themselves away one way or the other.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
