Perhaps I've missed it. The only text, that I've seen, says that Mr. Beale paid for provenance. I see that Informant #2 said to Mr. Beale, that the provenance was false. However, perhaps Mr. Beale did not believe Informant #2. Perhaps Mr. Beale believed that the provenance was correct. Ultimately, it hardly matters; because he admitted to faking provenances in a separate instance, anyway. It literally says "According to the defendant, this provenance is false." in regards to the Gaza hoard coins. It doesn't matter what mental gymnastics you do, he's pretty openly admitted to lying about provenance here.
