I picked up these two little coins lately. I have very few Ancient Greek Silver and these are some of the least expensive you can buy - but they are a very nice series to look at.



Thrace, Cherronesos Hemidrachm 400-350 E bee




Thrace, Cherronesos Hemidrachm 400-350 B.C E Ear of wheat
I'm assuming that is a dot beside the "E" - but it might be something else.

Are you worried that they might be casting bubbles?

No.

I'm referring to the "probable" dot to the left of the E - though it looks a little large to be the normal dot you see on these. On reflection it might just be an edge bump. Pellet is a better word than dot.

The weight it right for both of these and I got them from a reputable source. The flan crack at 1 o'clock gives me a good look at the inners of the coin and it definitely appears to be struck - not cast. I also checked every online fake report I could find and there is no die link to any of those. In-hand and under a loupe it seems OK

But you're right it's an area to be uber careful in.
