As far as I could find out, only one specimen was sold before:
... for 6000 CHF (!). This is probably more than you paid. This is one of those coins you might want to send for authentication.
I don't know where did you look, in acsearch there are 10 examples of von fritze 46....it used to be rare but with the recent flood it's not rare any more
I am sorry to say but IMHO this is fake 99.9%. it is almost 3g underweight. The incuse square is totally different to the design used for staters of kyzikos. The ram is also very different compared to the known dies von fritze 46. I let a 0.01% possibility I'm case it is an ancient forgery; I have never seen one but I am not a scholar studying kyzikos. As someone else proposed already send it for authentication as soon as possible
Not really.. 3 grams underweight, style way off , doesn’t appear to have enough gold, seller didn’t know what it was, flan shape is off from genuine coins. Probably not worth sending in..
...yeah..but other than that...
