The condemnation of the coins in this publication by Dr. Allan Walker and the International Bureau for the Suppression of Counterfeit Coins was contested by Dr. G. R. F. Assar, and the issue went to binding arbitration. The expert assigned to arbitrate was Prof. T. V. Buttrey, noted numismatist and Keeper Emeritus of the Fitzwilliam Coin Cabinet, Cambridge University. The arbitrator decided in favor of Dr. Walker and the IBSCC; a précis of the expert's report was published in the Counterfeit Coin Bulletin, November 2001.
