I've seen XF Alexander drachmas go over $1k, though this is too much. Unfortunately, bidding wars that don't really make sense can be common in these coins. Personally, I think $300-$400 for an XF is fair, maybe $600-$700 for a rare mint/type.
Ironically, as I understand Alexander drachmas are actually rarer than the fancier tets.
From what I've seen on Heritage, bids on well-known coins like Alexanders tend to go higher than market.
Pella is a good site for researching types before you purchase. Also try searching for the Price # on CoinArchives and CNG to see what previous ones have gone for.
