You can find a more exact match if you page down to Antioch here: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/philip_II/t.html
I noticed the eagle is not the same !! does this coin has any catalogue ?
I'm not sure what you mean by this. Keep in mind that all ancient coin dies were cut by hand, so subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) variations in both the obverse portraits and the reverses are to be expected.
That is a copper core wrapped in silver foil.
Hard to tell without more clear pictures.
A billon tetradrachm of Phillip II in rough shape, like yours, would probably sell for around $20.
You will have a great deal of trouble finding any dealer willing to tie up any money in common coins with such poor surfaces. There might be a beginner who would pay $20 but most people would pass on the coin and buy a nicer one or live without. Great rarities might be marketable in poor shape but this is not one.
