Haven't found an exact match for this one yet and am not sure if it's a posthumous edition or somehow authentic. It's a well done remake with wear, but probably to detailed and intricate still to be ancient. Any guess at it's value anyone?

What is the weight and diameter?

The fabric seems about right, but I don't like how much larger the flan is compared to the die - probably 90% of Alexander drachms are struck so that some small part of the reverse is off the flan - yours seems to have the whole die, plus an extra 1mm all the way around. That doesn't necessarily mean it's fake, but I'm not ready to call this one genuine just yet.

weight would be very helpful. I'm not seeing any immediate concerns, but I've only owned a few, so there are likely plenty out there that could sneak by me.

Your coin is a posthumous drachm struck after the death of Alexander. Nice looking coin.
