Ancient Greek Coin Macedon - Alexander III 'The Great' 336-323 B.C. AR Tetradrachm
A Tetradrachm of Alexander The Great is a staple coin among most serious Ancient Greek collections. Most of them are getting slabbed now; the only thing I don't like about that is you can never really pick up the coin and feel it. There is something about the ability to do that as a collector. This one is an excellent example with a nice strong and detailed strike. It hasn't been polished and does not appear cleaned. The coin has very nice fields as well. The color on both sides is similar to a matte grey with hints of irridencentswhich is a patina that has developed over many years. Details: Ancient, Obverse King Alexander lll "The Great" 336-323 BC AR Tetradrachm containing approx. 17gr of Silver. Head of Herkales right wearing Lion Skin, rev Zeus Aetophoros seated on Throne and Holding an Eagle. This coin is priced to move... so don't wait.
