Fake-PescenniusNiger-Concordia



Pescennius Niger, AR Denarius. Note: This cast is very interesting as the obverse is a die link to the Slavey piece with Apollini Sancto reverse. This example is a base metal product and not made by Slavey, so someone is taking Slavey's work, creating casts from the dies and making new pieces. Thus, all sorts of invalid obverse/reverse combinations may be found, depending on how prolific this forger is/was.

As well as the well known Slavey piece I am aware of two further reverse dies linked to this obverse die, SPES PVBLICA and a Serapis Caracalla reverse. Links to both below:-
