Dubious Balbinus denarius
Balbinus is one of the rarer Roman emperors, and all of his coins are pricey. I bought this one cheaply, because the dealer described it as a fouree - a contemporary counterfeit. I've uploaded it to get more opinions - is it a fouree, a modern cast fake, or a genuine though oddly worn denarius?
