Metropolitan Issue were minted in Constantinople, each of these coins had an added silver content unknown for this issue. The entire tetartera of Alexius III are much harder to find due to debasement of trachea virtually rendering the Tetarteron useless. The Metropolitan issues were believed to be produced only for two years 1195-1197.

Size 18/19mm

Weight 2.7gm

DOC lists 1 example with weight of 3.38gm and 19mm

This example matches the weights of my other example, the only difference between the two is this is slightly smaller but a slightly thicker flan.
