Hello All,
I picked this up yesterday...actually it was given to me (along with a 5 cent fractional postage currency note) after purchasing a collection...The woman said just take them, they're so small...So I Thanked her and took my new to me collection home.
Now here I am...I really don't have any idea what these are?
The 2x2 flip calls it a Silver Tetrabol.
Its weight is 2g's
Looks to be in pretty nice condition, no corrosion or pitting.
When looking up images though...looks like perhaps the head of the nymph is missing?
Anyone able to give me a Readers Digest version of what I have...aprox value...link with some more info?
Thank you for taking the time to look and comment!

Well the coin type is on this page:

But it is also a heavily faked coin and you can check that here to see if it matches a known fake:

I'm not an expert in the field, but it seems that this fake coin link that Louis informed us about several headless nymphs, a point of attention.
