  1. thank you so much for your respond, the proper name of it I think should be at least like "antiquarian forgery of Troubetzkoy ruble" or "modern copy of Troubetzkoy ruble" thanks again for your words, I think so too, somebody sees this coin as a real ruble I do not have Bitkin on hands, this ruble was reference as R4 in Bitkin. Does it say that there that this ruble is a fake of Troubetzkoy ?
  2. Hello everyone, just want to hear your opinion on recently sold 1825 Constantin ruble graded by NGC as Antiquarium forgery and sold at Heritage around nine thousand bucks. How NGC graded a fake of a forgery fake coin ? Another word, Trubetzkoy ruble is an antique forgery but this one graded by NGC is fake of the Trobetzkoy ruble.

  4. Very nice one too and the rocket price hit but not from Georgii Mikhailovich collection, thank you for showing ! P. S. I got few overstrikes also and checked with GM corpus and a little upset - did not find even one like from GM collection..
  5. Very impressive buy ! Did another bidder know its provenance and stopped bidding at 1600 euro ?

    What are these tokens

    I found that TM and K* means : Цыбики чая торгового дома "Токмаков, Молотков и Ко"

    What are these tokens

    I think that it is about a tea. Tea was brought to Russia from China back to XVII-XVIII c. Chinese wanted a trade with Russia and the trade village was built at the Russian-Chinese board named Кяхта, on Chinese territory - Маймачен. To China, Russian sent furs, back received Tea чай. Chinese tea later in XIX c. almost replaced the Russian kvas. Tea boxes from China had signs: ЧАЙ КЯХТА ТМ и К* (instead of star is a little upper o). So, the topic tokens may be related to it. If you search Russian sites with my info - you will see the boxes marked with similar letters so tokens were probably used for trade purposes too.
  8. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone would like to get rid (for good pay) of the Christies 1950 auction catalog with plates, the selection from Grand Duke Georgii Mikhailovich coins and medals collection, please let me know to PM. No need of copies and PDF files ! Original only ! Thank you in advance all who respond ! P.S. If anyone would like to get rid (for money) of any other Russian specialized auction catalogs please PM me.
