Athenian Tetra.

What do you guys think? Found in MA shops

    MA-shops is generally regarded as reputable; it's like eBay (in terms of being a "marketplace" of many sellers rather than a single-seller website), but with more checks and balances to prevent counterfeiters from coming onto their site and selling their junk. Not that counterfeits are impossible, just that they're much less likely than on eBay, or from a non-ancients-specialist coin dealer.

    I'm not seeing any red flags to indicate that this one is not genuine.

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

  • @Sapyx Thanks for the input, I just wanted to make sure as most counterfeits follow this partial or no nose style

    This coin must be one of the most faked in history (on the same place with the caesar elephant type).

  • @1984worldcoins For sure, all the most popular coins are massively counterfeited, Alexander III tetradrachms, morgan silver dollars, and countless others.
