Fakes / Fake seller- bul_fishing_1981
« Last post by Victor on May 26, 2017, 03:06:51 PM »
another fake seller from the UK with lots of fakes including Byzantine and Germanic kingdom.

Maybe he uses really dark pictures so that the coins don't look as fake.

saxby, like most fake sellers, sells many genuine coins; but he also sells a lot of fakes. He has sold more than a dozen fake Julian II bull coins, sometimes multiple examples of the same fake per week.   http://www.lateromanbronzecoinforum.com/index.php/topic,868.0.html
