Fake Aquilia Severa Denarii

This isn't one I recall being posted before so I thought I'd share. I was looking up something on CoinArchives today and I noticed these pressed fake Aquilia Severa Denarii. One was withdrawn, one unsold and the other in a current sale and the seller has been notified.

Large size close up images available of the withdrawn denarius

I have taken high resolution images of the withdrawn aquilia severa denarius. Let me know if you want me to send it to you. These are indeed deceptive and thus dangerous fakes.

I am not so sure they are pressed though. The flans look very good, cracks and all, the edge seemed not too unusual also.
