  1. Hello Julius Germanicus, The piece should be: RIC II 1² Domitian 104 (R / rare). http://numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.2_1(2).dom.104 Kind regards.
  2. The piece comes from the diocese of Worms. The Coiner was Dietrich von Bettendorf 1552-1580 as Prince Bishop of Worms. https://www.coinarchives.com/w/lotviewer.php?LotID=6448098&AucID=7453&Lot=757&Val=f213e36ac5d16a86ebff0904755ea99a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince-Bishopric_of_Worms https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dietrich_von_Bettendorf https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bettendorff_(Adelsgeschlecht) With friendly greetings from Germany
  3. Hello, this coin was minted in the Augsburg Imperial Mint. At that time, this mint was leased to Eberhard IV von Eppstein-Königstein. Eberhard IV was not a relative of the House of Habsburg but came from the House of Eppstein. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_of_Königstein https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lords_of_Eppstein With friendly greetings from Germany
  4. The reference literature for the Flavian coinage is: Roman Imperial Coinage Volume II - Part I https://www.amazon.com/dp/1902040848/ref=olp-opf-redir?aod=1&ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=1691873214&sr=8-1 With freendly greetings from Germany
  5. In my opinion: RIC II 1² Domitian 284 (R) https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b10447926b http://numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.2_1(2).dom.284
  6. The specific gravity is within the normal range how you write. I can't see any signs of plating on the photos either. I don't see why it shouldn't be a hybrid (mule) from the official roman mint. What else should it be, congratulations. 🙂
  7. The Fourrée from the Paris Collection can be seen online here: BNC III Titus 115, 2.61g https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b10447386j?rk=7832656;4 Completely different style ...
  8. Congratulations David ! Will this coin get its own number in RIC II 1² Addenda ? With friendly greetings from Germany
  9. O.K. Two collectors, two opinions, why not. The entire sale contains high-grade rarities for witch special collectors are happy to pay the asking prices. With the vast majority of pieces, it is not about condition but about rarity. With friendly greetings from Germany
  10. Hello El Cazador, maybe you ask David Atherton about this piece. He is also a member in this forum. If you think it's overpriced just show me a second piece ... . With friendly greetings from Germany
  11. Hello El Cazador, With coin do you mean exactly ? With friendly greetings from Germany
  12. Hello, defenitely the last one, when I collect the coins of "Otho" ! The first one is common but the last one is very rare. I myself immediately bought 12 pieces from the Flavians on Thursday. I can't speak for the other types but the Flavier on offer were almost cheap. Example: https://www.hjbltd.com/#!/inventory/item-detail/ancient-coins/102800?fromBbs=224th Buy Or Bid Sale RIC II 1² Domitian 324 (R2 / very few examples known). And this piece is the RIC plate-coin. 750$ ... I bought it immediately. With friendly greetings from Germany
  13. Hello Julius Germanicus, Originals from the same pair of dies only confirm the possibility that these may have served as a mould. Künker / Osnabrück have a field service in Hamburg: https://www.kuenker.de/de/kontakt/standorte-und-partner/partner-filiale-hamburg There is also the option of sending the coin to ngc for grading (~80€). If ngc refuses to encapsulate the piece, you are safe ... . It is simply not possible to say whether this piece is real or fake based on photos. With friendly greetings from Germany
  14. Hello Julius Germanicus, the patina is important for identifying counterfeits in non-ferrous metals. However, this coin was chemically and / or electrolytically cleaned down to the bar metal. Therefore it is difficult to identify a fake from photos alone. If you are convinced of the authenticity of this coin. all is well. Otherwise i would recommend you to present the piece to a specialist retailer. In Hamburg / Germany that would be for example: Auktionshaus Tietjen+Co oHg Hofweg 14 22085 Hamburg With friendly greetings from Germany
  15. Hello Julius Germanicus, if you are not the original buyer of this coin (07/2022), then the coin was returned to the ebay dealer. The Problem is that this piece is cleaned down to the bare metal. There are really no residue of patina visible anymore. The piece considered suspicious in the German Forum and probably represents an old cast. The RIC II 1² Domitian 351 (C) type is generally common and i wouldn't take any chances with it ! http://numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.2_1(2).dom.351 https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?term=domitian+351+germania&category=1-2&lot=&thesaurus=1&images=1&en=1&de=1&fr=1&it=1&es=1&ot=1&currency=usd&order=1 https://www.sixbid-coin-archive.com/#/de/search?text=domitian 351 germania With friendly greetings from Germany
