Finn235 Posted March 17 · Member Share Posted March 17 So I got this in a Roma large lot maybe six months ago and was planning to sell it - looks like a pretty average/lower condition denarius, right? Only one problem I've seen denarii as light as 2.5g and limes or fourees a hair above 2g, but never under 1.5g! I assumed it was a fake that slipped through, but I'm not so sure. The in hand "feel" honestly is closest to a modern Japanese Yen- there's just zero heft to it. I don't think silver crystallization can account for this much loss of mass, nor does there seem to be any indication that it's plated or even a modern casting. I'm stumped - any bright ideas? 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
