Hey Guys - Not sure about this coin, if it's greek or Judean.. It's bronze and 13mm across, and it appears to have a tree or leaf (fern?) or grain of some sort. Thanks for the help.

The obverse (bottom pic) may be too far gone to be of much help. Although it's tempting to think it might be an issue of the Roman Procurators of Judaea...the size, fabric, and the rendition of the palm tree suggest Seleukid to me.

Some searches:

You're so awesome Bob, thanks man. This one looks pretty close: https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=4557700

I can see the "coconut" looking thing on my coin, so now I'm almost certain you're right that it's a palm in that shape.

I can't thank you enough for all the help you give me, but I'll try... thank you!
