There's nothing I can see that suggests it's a modern reproduction, looks and feels right however it's always a bigger risk than when you dig it up I guess..

Here's how it went down...

Pot of coins and random ear-rings etc, tipped em out and had a poke through them, vicky pennys/euro cents/thruppenny bits etc, oh hello that's a roman, had a look any sign it might be a repro, nothing obvious.

Me: 'how much for this one?'
Brummie stall holder: ' coins are 20p bud'
Me: pause / sucking noise / pause 'this one's a bit dirty, how about 10p'
Brummie: 'go on then duck'

That's how they roll at those sort of events... :D
