Fakes on ebay, “altissime riproduzioni”

There is an ebay account from Italy (giusepper2480) selling fake greek coins. The guy is honest and he states they are “Altissime riproduzioni”, but it has already occurred in the past that his fakes have been bought by dishonest people, who sold them again as genuine on other auctions.

They are not so dangerous fakes, but I post here what he currently sells, as future memory for inexperienced collectors.
