  1. ohh.. come on Sigi! You wouldnt mind sifting through for rarities, on the one in a million chance!
  2. That 1757 has a lot of wonderful detail from both coins! Very nice!
  3. Welcome Swedishcopper. Interesting to learn these are hunted for by Russian and Swedish specialists. Of course! I would think the Avesta 5 kopeck is another coin of interest to you! I picked this 1k up on ebay long ago for a bargain.
  4. Catalog pages you linked show results from past auctions, and one upcoming auction. I have no comment on authenticity or grade.
  5. I vote for 1712, but regardless, its a nifty error brokage. Looks to me like BI
  6. I wonder if the gender of the various eagle designs has been researched. It is well known that among birds of prey, including the (single headed) Eagle, the female is typically larger than the male of the species. Perhaps the same characteristic is true for our Imperial 2 headed friend. If so, how to tell?
  7. Thank you for the mint id! The overstruck coins are most interesting to me, but good to see my little group is diverse as to mint!
  8. Could you point out the distinction? Is it the feather pattern?
  9. Thanks, Sigi! I am mostly practicing with my camera, and trying new ways to post photos here, without the upload size limit. I have not shown the other duplicate 2k Elizabeth i have, but i thought a group photo would be a good start. I am also having fun digging thru coins i have not looked at in years. There is no way to make ugly copper pretty, but a good photo helps! Maybe next i will do a 1k, polushka, and denga momogram type group photo?
  10. I would like to show my small collection of 2K copper, from the Elizabeth years..
  11. I am embarrased, Eugene, that i did not connect this thread with your previous sharing of your work in the 2016 article.. re reading, i had even posted my compliments there! I have now looked at your other works that you have translated to English, thank you! And discovered your website! Sadly, Russian for me is limited besides what i have gleaned from numismatics, to a single college semester, covering very basic topics, including proper cursive writing, and a limited vocabulary and conjugations. To tell you how long ago the class was, the instructor was an older lady whom came to the US from Moscow, and was very excited to tell the class about a gentleman named Yeltsin, and some political changes happening back home! In those days, I struggled through my copy of Uzdenikov in Russian. When the English/Russian version was published I bought one of the first available! (From Basok?) So i know time is precious, and goes by quickly, so if not an in depth translation perhaps a brief synopsis in English someday. The distinction of eagle variants is most interesting! Regards. Josh
  12. I am having a hard time seeing differences in the eagles. I have not seen Eugene's guide, is it online? I assume the scroll types are from this guide?
  13. Apologies for the high grade of ugliness on that second 1759MM.. its my duplicate ugly.
  14. I like this topic.. I will show my small collection of Elizabeth 5k copper.
  15. Certainly spectacular! I too am jealous. Closest i think for me is 1759 and 1760 MM and ugly!
  16. Wow, never have seen that. I assumed jewelry. I have always avoided holed coins as a rule, but this was still attractive to me, and a bargain find!
  17. Somebody carried this around on a string..but still mostly intact old silver. Recent addition to my collection of Peter the Great tiny silver.
  18. I am contented that i own a fine example of a genuine cipher series 1796 10 kopeck. The catch is, Its cleverly disguised as a common 1793 EM 5 kopeck. 😂
  19. Very clear! On your last image, at 12 oclock, above the 1791 eagle heads and crown, you can see the 10 from the previous 10K cipher undercoin, which is overstruck on the now hugely flatted crowns and wingtips of the previous 5K coin. It would be really fun if anyone could spot any traces of Peters 1762 10K!
