    Sorry, but the photos are just too poor to make any call. That said, the condition appears to be so poor I would not bother to spend any more time or effort on it.

    Looks real, just very overcleaned and in poor condition. Not even worth .50.

    A coworker likes to tell folks with this question: "Yes it is real. However, whether it is genuine or not I cannot say." After they think for few seconds, they get his "joke." :wink:

    Please post photos of both sides, too.

    There are many genuine coins from ancient Greece in this time period.
    Most are not especially rare or valuable.
    You can buy low end genuine coins for $5-10.

    I suspect it's an unidentifiable "slug", badly worn and/or corroded. They can tell it's an ancient Geek coin (an assessment I'd agree is likely), but can't tell the ID any further than that.

    Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.

    Can you pop that holder open and take close and sharp images of the obv and rev?
