Fake-Geta-Denarius-Implements



Geta, AR Denarius. Note: The reverse legend is incorrect. It should read SEVERI PII AVG FIL and apparently the engraver was looking at a worn specimen and did not understand AVG FIL and instead engraved AVGG II. Also, although the portrait is pretty nice, the reverse style is too lifeless, the reverse legend engraved completely wrong and the flan is clearly modern.
