    My lost treasure

    I completely forgot that I had treasure that I found many years ago WITHOUT a detector. The silver heart was found in a bush at a park. The coins were found at a hotel AFTER a coin show exhibit. I wish I new what some of them are.

    What's the date on the American penny? And mintmark ( D , S)? Also I believe the Coin three over from the left is an ancient Roman or Greek Silver coin if not a repro. If authenticated you may be able to buy a new detector or more with it. I have never seen one of those coins so big. Supa sweet finds!

    I will check on the penny. The greek or Roman coin feels very heavy and comes up as a 50 cent piece on my detector. I will have to check on authenticity.

    Is this the same as your coin:

    I can't tell from your picture if it matches the above one.

    It definitely looks a lot like Alexander the Great.

    Here are some more Alexander the Great links with potential images of your coin:

    and I got the above from Google image search using this command:

    If its real, then your coin is about 2300-2400 years old. Gotta be your oldest find to date.
