Hello!

 

Yesterday i bought big collection, and i have 3 intresting coins in the collection i don't know what is they!

 

The Rouble and the 20 kopeks are bronze, the 5 kopek perhaps tin!

5 kop looks original. Sometimes patina on these can be this sort of metallic black. The others are counterfeits for circulation.

The metal it is made from is most important. The first time I have seen one of these counterfeits, I couldn't believe it wasn't the original coin until I tried to ring it. It sounded very dull. I recently found out as well, that there were some counterfeit dengas around made with a big concentration of iron. Haven't found one yet.

I'm working at teaching my 10yr old stepson to listen to the coin, and learning that it is hard to explain the correct sounds to somebody else :crazy:

In that case it is similar to this one:

made of tin... If you decide to sell them, let me know. I have a small collection of fakes.

Who has this coin? Is it really tin? Can someone confirm? Looks like a mishandled novodel to me. Does not look like a forgery for circulation.

The last coin in this topic. I only assumed it was tin, no research done.

I just asked the person who posted the images to provide more info, if available.

If I hear from him, I'll post his answer here...
