I picked up these two greek coins from an estate sale recently. I'm trying to identify exactly what they are. From what I can figure out this one has the head of Herakles on one side, and Zues seated with an eagle in one hand and a septer in the other. Under the eagle there appears to be a bat and a M and underneath the throne there is what appears to be a crown.
Hello everyone. I'm new to the hobby. I purchased my first coin (an Alexander), listed online with this heading: "Alexander the Great Tetradrachm 175-125 BC Large Silver Coin". I'm attempting to retrieve some information on the region in which it was struck, and any other information applicable to the coin's production. Given the date, it was produced a couple centuries after his death. The listing contained the following verbiage... "Alexander the Great Silver Tetradrachm 175-125 BC. Two special things to notice about this particular coin, the obverse is doublestruck and on the reverse the helmet below eagle is uncommon variety. Weighs 16.8 and guaranteed genuine. You get the exact coin in the photo." Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!
Hello everyone, my name is Carlos and I'm new to coinpeople. I wanted to ask you a question about a tetradrachm of Alexander the Great I have. I'd like to know if it's genuine or fake. I'm asking because I've seen a coin on Wikipedia with a very similar die, although the flan and centering are a bit different. Thanks on advance! Here's the coin from Wikipedia: http://commons.wikim....jpg?uselang=es
