Default Unknown Coin.

I found this coin in a uncleaned lot I purchased recently. Some people think that this coin might be Alexander The Great. I never found a match for this coin.

AE, 1.6g, 11.58mm

Here is the lot the coin came from that was originally purchased from Haifa Israel.

This site blocks hotlinking and I haven't uploaded it here yet since I don't know what the coin is yet. I would appreciate some help. I've posted this coin on two other forums. No one knows exactly, so far.

Alexander the Great is a good guess. The reverse clealrly has a club on it. I can't identify anything else. Most of the bronze coins w/ clubs were in the name of Alexander but not all.

If real, the coin is probably worth between $400-$800. If the coin is fake, it is worth $10-$15.
