Hi guys...first time posting here...here goes:
Jack and Jill are professional divers who spend their weekends diving deep in oceans and seas to look for valuable trinkets. Seldom they find unusual items which they then sell to their friend Jack, who runs an antique shop.
One evening Jack and Jill rush into Jack's shop full of euphoria. They tell Jack that they've finally hit the jackpot! During their dive in the morning they have discovered a coin which they feel could be the rarest coin and worth a large fortune. But because they know nothing about getting coins assessed and don't want to deal with the hassles of doing so, they are willing to sell it to Jack (since he's been such a good friend all these years) for just $5,0000.
They then hand over the coin to Jack. The coin is slightly bent and rustically dirty, still with remnants of algae and dirt in spite of being washed. Upon looking closer, Jack sees that the coin is much like the coins we use today. One side has a head of a man wearing a crown. Below his head the word FLAVIUS is inscribed. The other side of the coin has a picture of an elegant Castle with 50B.C. and the word SKOVAN inscribed on the bottom.
The coin looks authentic and Jack feels that $5,000 will be a steal in this case for this rare old coin would be worth millions. So he pays Jack and Jill the $5,000 and takes the coin home to show his wife the investment that will change their lives. His wife looks at the coin and instantly tells him that its a fake!
HOW AND WHY?
