this crook is a real competition for uniques77777. Terrible legion rings, not nearly authentic. What distinguishes him from the Bulgarian seller are the inscriptions on all items. Every free space is incised.

This crook strives to take the lead in the fake business. It's going to be difficult, the Bulgarians are fighting hard and with lots of fakes for the first place

Result of the 14 day fake sales.
Not bad - cheating is well worth it, at least on ebay

From now on I will leave the pictures uncommented. The crowd forces a quick and efficient show-off. By now, the attentive observers may well be able to identify the fakes as such.

I wonder if any of the buyers of those really spooky rings ever even looked into a book for Roman artefacts and/or rings. The museums offer tons of fantastic artifacts to watch online. Descriptions that encourage learning and still ...., every junk is bought.

after a longer break this crook tried to re-conquer the market of Roman fakes. But - as for his Serbian and Bulgarian competitors, the market has become uninteresting for sellers due to the flood of fakes over the years. The selling prices have fallen below replica level.
Now the crooks are working their way up, Byzantine or like here now knight rings, preferably Templar. The fake-prices are kept so high by the crooks that a newcomer must believe that such an expensive ring can only be real. Ingenious strategy.
