The condemnation of a group of Parthian gold and silver coins in Bulletin on Counterfeits, vol. 19, no. 2 (1994/5) 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; this article is a précis of the expert's report.
