Thanks, Alex. I can't help wondering if this coin isn't from the same hoard as the other 6 Alex drachms I have. Those came from a Middle East hoard in the early 1990's. They were initially brilliantly lustrous, but have started toning. This coin is a consistent grey with underlying luster. I'll be curious to see how it tones over time and how it compares to the others that way. By accident my three Miletos drachms are consecutive Price coins starting with 2088. -h
