Marcus Aurelius “unpublished and unknown”

The auction house Nomos AG has recently listed this coin on auction (Estimate: 500 CHF). The lot was pointed out privately to me by an american collector who first had some suspects on it.

After I started this discussion on lamoneta, expert discussed and there was agreement it is likely a modern fake. The lot was withdrawn at the last minute.
