"True glory takes root, and even spreads; all false pretences, like flowers, fall to the ground; nor can any counterfeit last long."
-Marcus Tullius Cicero 106 BC - 43 BC
Time spent around metal and ne'erdowell activities has provided a particular skillset in the field of counterfeit coinage. By mixing iron into the molten silver, you earn yourself a pretty penny and increase the worth of the silver immensely when stamping it into coin! WARNING: This is a crime and will leave evidence of the act.
