what is that ??

Hi everyone,

I have seen that for sell on ebayUK and it looks weird, isn't it ?

here are the comment of the seller:

This is for a job lot of copy Roman coins.
Total coins - 30 coins (60 halves)
Total moulds - 70 strips varying from 4 moulds to 10.
I have no idea what the coins are made of but they look like silver.
I think the moulds are brass.
The coin halves will be sent in pairs each in a plastic envelope but I may not have got the two correct halves together.
Can't say much else as I really don't know much about them

all this sounds very bad to me .......

Could these be partially done electrotypes (waiting to be filled and joined) - done in groups - rather than moulds?
