This is a beautiful example of the most popular ancient coin - the Attica Athens Tetradrachm, aka the "Athens Owl." This coin actually had been graded by NGC before being removed from its plastic tomb, as many ancient coin collectors prefer. The grade on the label that comes with the coin is "Ch AU. Strike 5/5. Surface 5/5."
