    Tour attribution look right. I've seen this one before and I posted my Price 3162 which is only slightly different. The helmet on yours is outstanding

    Thanks Bing :D

    I bought it because of the helmet...

    It was either a coin with an average of both sides or a coin with a great Helmet and a little worse shield... Well worth it IMO :D

    Very nice coins. I'm not really into Greeks and only have one, but I want this type to be my next one if I ever get the Greek itch again.

    I'll add this to your thread even though I posted it elsewhere. A coin issued by Alexander the Great's father...
