I scored these for $1.50 each and while they're not in the best shape, I think I did pretty good on them. I got 9 in total, but I only wanted to post four at a time. These busts are different than the ones I'm used to seeing, so I am having a tough time finding out how to ID them. Any help is appreciated! Thanks :)

Might start with a search at ACsearch.info on this: alexandria ae tetradrachm -eagle

(the "-eagle" is to eliminate the eagles in the returns)

Noting some "softness" - perhaps just worn dies and wear? Perhaps normal for these? Any concerns?

They seem pretty consistent with the other ones I've seen in the past, so I don't have any concerns on them. The strikes are not as prominent on a smaller coin of that era.

When I search and I select "english" many of the results are in a different language still. Am I missing something?

No, you're not missing anything. The listings are verbatim from the sources, I believe, whatever language those sources were in. That's when I right-click (in Chrome) to the Translate-to-English option in the drop-down.
