Attica Athens Owl Ar Tetradrachm C 440-404 Bc Ngc Au Ancient Greek Coin For Sale
This sale is for an original, well struck, high relief Athens Owl Tetradrachm (17.01 g, 24 mm). This classic Greek coin was struck circa
440-404 BC. It is nicely centered in elegant
style. Most Owls on the market have
dipped out, “burned,” un-natural surfaces.
This Owl has that un-dipped, natural skin that is highly desirable. Also, check out the details of the high
points, evidence of very little wear. This
is how you want an almost uncirculated, problem free, ancient coin to look.
Obverse: Helmeted head of
Athena right. Reverse: Owl standing to
right, olive sprig and crescent behind, all within incuse square.
Most Athens Owls are poorly made with awful, weak, or off center
strikes. Terrible surface quality is the
norm. Despite many of these popular Owls
being available, really nice specimens are few and far between.
NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corp) grades this coin AU (almost
uncirculated) with Strike 4/5 and Surface 4/5 ratings. I recommend
going to the NGC website for more detailed explanations of the grades this coin
Ancient coins listed on
are usually not certified by NGC and often harshly cleaned or have major problems
and poor eye appeal. Do yourself a favor
and invest only in ancient coins certified by NGC.
