GREECE - MACEDONIA - ALEXANDER - TETRADRACHM

A over torch in left field (instead of Lamda over torch), star over M beneath chair. The letter on the left is definitely an A as can be seen by comparing it with the two As of AlexAndrou. The N of the legend is not as it should be, the folds of his chlamys on his right knee are too linear, his drawn back right foot looks crippled or half missing. 17.03 grams. Near very fine
