fake Proculus from amorcoins713

have you been waiting to get a coin from the usurper Proculus? Well, amorcoins713 has one for sale, but like most of his coins, it is a terrible fake.

Proculus was a usurper, circa A.D. 280...maybe. There is debate on this, as he might not have even existed-- the historical records are sketchy.

There have been two coins that many think are legitimate issues from Proculus, but some, including Roger Bland from the BM, believe are fakes. Second picture below is the first one that was discovered.
