Greek Silver Coin Alexander 300 Bc (c032):
GREEK SILVER COIN ALEXANDER 300 BC (C032)
Alexander III AR Tetradrachm. Magnesia mint? Circa 309-305 BC.
Obv: Head of Herakles, in lionskin headdress.
Zeus enthroned left with eagle and sceptre. Left field, delta within circle ♽ (wreath?) with AΓI or AΠ below.
Upon close inspection the coin portrays the usual or customary fine scratch lines and miniature pock marks usually present on similar coins of this age; however I have my doubts on this coins authenticity for the following reasons.
1. I cannot find a similar coin with the monogram and letters as portrayed in the left field, opposite Zeus.
2. The coins outer edge appears abnormal, folded/lined?, see associated picture (three edge or side views of the rim)
3. The coin appears malformed on its rim, as though it has been nibbled at, or cut away. However, having said this, several similar specimens showing the same characteristics have been noted on the internet.
Please bear the above information in mind if you wish to offer on the coin.
The coin is silver. Please grade as per the pictures.
