- Jan 27, 2011Hi, Daniel
<Yes I've read this note too, so I was wondering WHY someone has doubted, on which basis ? When you have a <doubt you explain why (like Sermarini on FAC about my coin).
Sometimes could be that there is something in style that does not fit.
Soemtimes brain integres a lot of data that are difficult to explain.
But I agree with yoy that to express a doubt and add why you doubt is a great help.
The quasi quincux maybe is the reason of the doubt, but that is my guess
In the coin in question, what I see are the smalls beads that are or from a rusted die or from a cast (transference errors). Apart of what Mr. Sermarini said.
Well, for the test, as far as I know, Dr. Pernicka do it
He is at University Tübingen
The method is well known in geoscience.
Thanks for sharing the fotos when you can.
Well, my congrats for the piece.
It is a piece that I would like also to see in hand to analyze.
And of course, I am sure that a lot would be learnt from the talk.
With best wishes

Yes I've read this note too, so I was wondering WHY someone has doubted, on which basis ? When you have a doubt you explain why (like Sermarini on FAC about my coin).

Yes, but I don't know where to make this test here. I've asked to some scolar to see if it's possible.
> May you be so kind also to share the photos you would take?
Yes, I will share with pleasure.
All this for a bid that I've done without a real intention to buy...
and my bid was "less than the seller's reserve price" (as written in the email confirmation).
Well, I hope that this will be an usefull discussion about electrum coins at least.
