25,000 Euro Fake Wappenmunze

Ed Snible emailed me this 25,000 Euro Fake Wappenmunze, attached below. It is a die match to IBSCC Bulletin on Counterfeits BOCS Vol 24 No.1 1999 Page 8 Fig 1a. Currently on auction in Germany.

Looking further at the auctions I noticed this fake Galba Livia Denarius, attached below

And this fake Histiaia tetrobol, attached below

And this fake Istros trihemiobol attached below.

I personally notified the auction house almost a week ago about the Wappenmunze and the Galba. Oh well...

Mr Gerhard Hirsch Nachfolger was kind enough to send me the following email.

We already compared it to the mentioned link and discovered it is not the same.

However, I disagree. Here is a composite image, so you may decide for yourselves. IMO, all the differences are due to doctoring and photography, but the two are 100% die matches.
