  1. I am too outbid all but one lot and it is tomorrow. About the ended lots, i was looking the results and then found that 1826 5 kop XF was sold 1100 CHF and next lot 1826 5 kop AU sold 325 CHF Intresting, opened lots to look why is that. Here is the photo: https://auktionen.sincona.com/img/lose/111/00507q00.jpg LOT:507 5 Kopecks 1826, St. Petersburg Mint, HГ. 1.08 g. Bitkin 149 var. Severin 2885 var. Good extremely fine. 5 копеек 1826, СПб МД, HГ. 1.08 г. Биткин 149 вар. Северин 2885 вар. Состояние лучше чем отличное. Collector’s note: “S. Var(iant) not in Severin. Rare! Unicum?? C Џ Б!” Well, i bought some times ago 5 kop 1826 from ebay, MS62 and it had too that Sankt Petersburg upside down, so definately its not uniq. This upside down P was even mentioned in ebay but no one blinked an eye, when sincona says it, everyone loses their mind. Here is a potato for you, thanks for reading.
  2. I havent even tought about this type of 10 kopecks as far as you. I have long to go before these kind of coins. This set thing was confusing, like they meant that bank gave this set out, different varieties and all coins approx. same quality(as new). About the prices: this 10 kop. sold 28 000.- pound. (+ BP i think= The most expensive!!! 5 kop. 1812 bitkin R3 http://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=1374&category=28204&lot=1260181 39 000.- pound And this coin, estimate was smallest and i even bid on that one. http://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=1374&category=28204&lot=1260206 Sold 5000 !!!! pound UNREAL 5 kop 1825 R3 20000.- pound http://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=1374&category=28204&lot=1260211 All 39 coins together 238,100.- pound Well played morton and eden Prices here http://www.mortonandeden.com/prices/10_06_14.pdf
  3. 09.06 was Morton and Eden auction. 39 amazing Alexander I silver coins sold, coins are here. http://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=1374&category=28204 I was curious about where they are from and is there more to come. I googled it and found a great story behind these gems. LONDON.- A group of rare silver Tsarist coins in extraordinary condition has been discovered among a large cache of otherwise mainly unremarkable coinage by specialist London auctioneers Morton & Eden. The 39 coins, struck during the reign of Alexander I, could raise as much as £100,000 when they are offered for sale on June 10. They were found by Jeremy Cheek when he was sifting through hundreds of small old envelopes of coins sent for appraisal by a descendant of an eastern European family whose members had emigrated to the West many years ago. Most was worn common coinage of low commercial value, but one envelope contained what appears to be part of a set of silver kopecks of different dates and face values struck by Tsar Alexander I who ruled as Emperor of Russia from 1801 until his death in 1825. The coins are small, ranging from 14mm to 22mm (0.55-0.87 inches) in diameter. “I was really surprised to find them in an otherwise fairly ordinary group of coins,” Mr Cheek said, “and moreover I was astonished by their condition. Clearly they have never been in circulation. Their origin remains a mystery. Each coin is a different variety, there being no duplication, and yet there are no apparent records of such a set having been issued.” Given their exceptional state of preservation, it was felt the coins should be officially graded for their condition to be fully appreciated by collectors. They were sent to the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) whose specialists inspected each coin individually. Coins are graded on a scale up to MS70, MS standing for “Mint State”. Most of the coins were rated at MS64 or above, five of them at MS66. The group also includes coins with extremely rare dates. A 10 kopecks of 1803 is the most valuable. It was graded at MS65 on the PCGS scale and is estimated at £15,000-20,000. A 5 kopecks of 1812 (MS64), is estimated at £8,000-12,000, and a 5 kopecks of 1825 (also MS64), is estimated at £6,000-8,000.

  4. I made only one "just in case bid", to lot 4555, lost. Rouble 1846 MS62, lovely coin in my eyes. Intresting that lot 4598, Coronation ruble of Nikolai II 1896 MS62 was UNSOLD. What does it mean? Estimate 1000-1500, so no one didnt offered even 1000$? or how does it work. http://images.goldbergauctions.com/php/lot_auc.php?site=1&sale=80&lot=4598
  5. Thanks to all. Since i already have Alex 25 and 50 kopecks, the only one im worried about is rouble. Aaah, just need to save "some" money(or win a lottery) and keep my eyes open. Lets hope that one day i can make another gif;)
  6. I finally got all Nikolai II circulation silver coins graded as Mint State and wanted to share with you and made a GIF. All but one i bought/got as raw, the only one that was already graded is 50 kopecks 1912 MS63. Here is the list: 5 kopecks 1901 MS-64 10 kopecks 1915 MS-65 15 Kopecks 1915 MS-67 20 kopecks 1915 MS-66 25 kopecks 1896 MS-65 50 kopecks 1912 MS-63 1 rouble 1912 MS-64 http://gifmaker.me/PlayFrameAnimation.php?folder=2014060205KS7uXzmc72xXo5nlTslAlN Well, Alexander III will be next , already have 3 out of 7
  7. art, seems that you dont hold them everyday in hand. 1,2 and 5 cents supposed to be copper(red or brown) This one is golden. I have seen pictures in forum about these before. For sure it is rarer than normal one but personally i dont collect euro coins and dont know much more. Nice find anyway! Edit: If this would be lincoln 1 cent and made from brass or nickel, it would be ultimate rarity and $$$ signs would blink but not sure about euro coins.
  8. Another one that intrested me: Sincona lot 528, 2200 CHF + bp http://www.m-dv.ru/monety-rossii-1700-1917/prohod,107820/coins,3695/type,5191/auction,83/date,2013-10-14/lot,528/images-prohod.html Heritage lot 25825, 1410$ MS63 http://coins.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=3032&lotNo=25825
  9. Poland zloty 1837 PF63, on envelope brilliant proof http://coins.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=241410&lotNo=15231 To be honest, if this coin would be raw in internet auction, i never would thought that this proof. Denmark 4srm 1871, on envelope proof, graded MS63 http://coins.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=241410&lotNo=15085 There are more of these, i just looked from my tracked lots. Still i think, the grader was not enaugh educated to grade them properly.
  10. On that Heritage link, there is a photo of an envelope where this 1827 25k were. On that was written proof. If someone has time to look, then there were more non.russian EPN coins proof but ngc graded MS. I just thought that long ago they were not so educated to recognize proof from well struck coin:P
  11. I was wrong about the proof part.( atleast i can dream:D) This coin is now graded and got MS64 http://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/index.aspx?CertNumber=2790074-009 Im glad to have it in my collection!
  12. i think 8-9k. There is 25 kop 1827 from same collection too. I belive old EHR Green collection. http://coins.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=241410&lotNo=15253&lotIdNo=11221 Old envelope with 75c price , i want a time machine. Love the wings down silver coins. I have only 5kop but atleast UNC;)

  16. thanks for sharing! Nice coins and gl with completing. My goal is to get them by type, 5 coins and all in mint state. 15k 1923, 50k 1922 and 1R 1921 are now in NGC. I have a strange 10k 1923, below the patina it looks like proof. Altought i dont have any experience with old proof coins with patina, i recognize only new ones that are like mirrors. It surely looks different than any other coin that i have but i dont know....... http://www.upload.ee/image/3608204/proof1.jpg http://www.upload.ee/image/3608209/proof2.jpg http://www.upload.ee/image/3608210/proof3.jpg Any thoughts?
  17. Thank you for answering. Here is the correct picture http://www.upload.ee/image/3306209/reverse.jpg I weighted it 3 times. 5,17 and 2x 5,16. Checked the scale with 25 kopeks 1896 and it was 5,00 as it should.

  23. Hello! Finally a person who is intrested in Straits coins. I have one pretty piece. 10c 1883. I have looked for so long information about that on. None sold in Heritage and google doesntˇt find either any sold. This coin is going from Estonia to NGC to be slabbed in this spring with my Czar russian coins and french indo-china 10c 1898 etc. This is going to be my first time to slab the coins. Ok, about the coin. NGC population 4, best AU58, so called Key date. Enjoy photos! nice patina Btw, since you know much about them, what grade you think i will get?
