  • Apollonia Pontika silver drachm: Is it ancient?

    After reading articles about the many FAKE silver coins of Apollonia Pontika I was left wondering if my recent purchase was authentic. I searched the “New York Hoard” http://rg.ancients.info/bulgarian_school/forgeries.html and didn’t find a die match. However that doesn’t necessarily mean the coin is ancient. Many times I have wondered why some dealers don’t provide better photos. The size of the coin is 14 mm and 2.8 grams. I think it is a SNG Cop 454.
