I meant it in a mathematical manner, the proper expression probably should have been: (Fake)^2 News.

Here is some more of Indo-Greek "rarities" (both were also posted here by Desibot, if I'm not mistaken).

This time these things are "authenticated" by ANACS:

I still can't identify these fakes. As if another one was needed, this is one more example of TPGs unable to fulfil their brazen promise of being able to "guarantee" that a coin outside of North American numismatics is genuine as well as a reminder of the importance of self-education.

Whoever produces them, it must be one individual or the same group, as stylistically these items are quite similar - all are somewhat cartoonish looking..

BTW, here is the "King" of such fakes on VCOINS: INDUS VALLEY COINS

Second coin from this post recently sold on VCOINS by Indus Valley Coins:
