      Hi, Daniel

      I only can be thankful for the photos you placed.

      As you say, mine is just an opinion.

      For the Turks: well, it goes to Unidroit. The wording in Forvm states a date of discovery/unearthing that is later than Unidroit, so, Turks could ask for it. It is not a fixing, just a thing that I could not understand. You said that date is far before the stated one. But I have not seen any fixing of date said in Forvm.

      No blame at you, you are bonafide: as you say, buying in an official, worldwide visible auction, and even more, publishing good quality photos.

      I personally am very thankful to you

      Daniel, please, in no way I am suggesting that you should do the tests. That cost money.

      I am thinking in the world.

      Many things in which we have only opinions, sometimes, science could help to sort sheep and goats.

      Anyway, as I said previously, my congratulations for the piece.

      I wish I have it in hands (yes, to butcher it...But I am very curious....)

      With best wishes

      But none argued about these doubts... so we have only opinions.

      It's only an effect as you can see in other photos.
      I think it's a genuine coin but I respect your opinion.

      I'm wondering why you are fixed on the fact that the Turks would be interested. This coin was (like an electrum stater and other coins from the today Turkey) on a public auction. So viewable to the worldwide.
      If they were interested may be the stater was more important (and rare) that my coin. More, today close the cng eauction with some ephesian fractions and Alyatte coins...

      If I can I will do all the test possibles.

      Best Regards
