This is the last from the batch of coins I bought. Is it Seleukid Kingdom or am I miles away?

30mm. 16.15grams.

Kev, I believe your coin is Antiochos VIII 121-96 BC Sear# 7142.

Any thoughts on why this coin looks a little like it was plated (especially around the edge as you can see in the pic below)? Not necessarily saying it is fake or a fourree, but I'm bothered by the surface. A rescue from a fire?

When I first saw this coin I though the same thing. I believe the coin is genuine but has environmental damage and what appears to be horn silver.

Ok I'm sure you are right Ron, but to my uneducated eyes, it was concerning.
