    Repatinated coin; probably authentic base.
    There's a very popular fashion of ancient bronze coins repatination in Spain (where this coin comes from ... )

      Suspicious

      Again, a coin coated with a heavy fake patina--that could hide a variety of sins--no way to tell if this coin is real of not under than heavy layer of fake glob.

          According to MayaDigger at Forum, repatination COULD involve glue, among other things.

            I also saw this one, currently it has a $400 bid. Hard to tell from the photo but I had enough reservations to stay away from it. I dont have a lot of the reservations others have about repatination, as I understand many are done so out of necessity. It is always a good idea to double check current coin values for a type. This coin, if authentic, ought to bring up towards $1,000. Why is it on Ebay? It should be in a major venue, not on a virtual flea market. This is enough for me to not bid.
