Old Bronze? Rom? Grk? Coin ID
 
2 Attachment(s)
Found in personal effects of deceased friend. Any ideas/thoughts at all about it would be helpful: I have no background whatsoever! Appears very old, very slightly off-center (attaching images... I hope that is the proper way to do this here.) Note that there is no "bust" image of a ruler on either side: one side depicts a building with pillars while the other depicts a gathered bundle of wheat as its centerpiece.

::sigh:: 311 views so far, and NOT A SINGLE COMMENT? :/ I'm beginning to think that maybe, despite the fact that it looks solid and old and official 'n everything, maybe it's simply not a real coin??? If anyone has *ANY* idea of anything about the script on it or anything, *please* leave a note!

Really wish I could help. If not a fantasy (a big if) it would be a Judaean type. That's all I can say :(

Rasiel! THANK YOU for answering! :) I was beginning to wonder if people were even able to see the comment when they clicked on it! LOL!

It's definitely not a fantasy... were you able to see the pics? Would it help if I tried to take clearer pictures? I hadn't put a lot of effort into it because I figured it was probably something common that someone here would just take a glance at and say, "Oh, that's a X. No big deal."

I've been a bit puzzled because the counter seems to show over 300 visits to my posting, but only about a half dozen folks have clicked on the images. Did I upload them correctly for viewing here or did I do something wrong??

:)

Normally you would upload the coin images (add a coin link on the left control panel) then post a link here. Otherwise not many people will see them if they're only post attachments.

Hope you get some answers!

Rasiel, ***THANK YOU***! That is a VERY helpful suggestion! I thought everyone could just see the images as part of the message the way I had posted it. Will check out the form and see what I can do.

It is a copy of a jewish war Sela. Probably modern.

THANK YOU MRichter! :) Yes, looking over images that Sela War Coin brought me to, it looks very much like that's the correct call. I guess to determine if it were real or not I'd have to bring it to a dealer?

Although, quite honestly, it doesn't look anywhere nearly worn enough to be authentic: looks more like two hundred than two thousand years old.

Still, probably worth having it looked at. None of the several dozen images that I pulled up with the Ark on the one side and the grain on the other looked *quite* like it, though several were close.

Thanks again, and any further words of advice appreciated!

:)
Mikey
