  1. I must say, you have some interesting and impressive coins for sale on eBay sometimes, Rarenum. One day I may buy from you. Not for a while... But it's nice to see these interesting coins, that don't come around often.


    Another one I am looking for and so far couldn't find in collectable condition is 1767 kolyvan 10 kopecks without KM:



    Siberian 1767 10 k possible to find in VF only. Highest grade not possible to find,any XF or better should bring very strong price.



    I think the only coin that I really would like at the moment is a circulated platinum 3 ruble coin. That's a few years down the road. Other regional coins such as Armavir, Tannu Tuva, Spitzbergen and Georgian coins do interest me - I just seem to have a love and hate relationship with those particular type of coins. I should offload my entire collection and see how that sparks interest - haven't seen a few coins on the market for a while.


    From your list I collect Georgian coins. About 15-10 years ago I was able to find 2-3 coins on every show .

    Last year at Chicago ANA show one coin dealer ask me question "Were is all Georgian coins disappeared?"



  3. Please feel free to send personal offers anytime.

    I thought to start this new thread to add some life to Russian section of the forum. There are some interesting coins on eBay (still!!!), don't you agree? Some have astronomical prices that some sellers believe are justifiable, and that keeps those coins unsold. They are nonetheless are attractive for different reasons: their quality, rarety, beauty, etc... If you have such examples, and you are not inclined to satisfy their exorbitant price tags in a near future, show them to everyone else, I dare you. ;) We have little to loose doing this, I think, as these coins have been sitting in your watch for many moons, like mine...


    Please show coins only from trusted sellers, as there is no harm in promoting them! :) And who knows, may be they will drop their prices






    Please feel free to contact me with personal offers.



    PS: I'm always look forward to accept reasonable offer.

  4. Hope you can find #20 for your collection soon. Here are all 3 types I believe:



    Thank you.

    I've shown it on CFN (ЦФН) forum, and it looks like it is an old counterfeit of the time, as I suspected.


    It generated some interest there.


    This is a scan of original coin from Brekke:




    These are 3 types of original coins apparently. Here are two of them (shown on CFN again):





    if anyone can show the third type it would be great.

    Diakov Catalog Part II(2000) page 144 listed 3 variety #19-21 .I have in my collection #19 and #21.Number 20 (Letter "k" attached to"7") is missing .

  6. I looked hard, 17K must be a rare forgery of a rare coin, as I couldn't find any other examples so far, including in Khramenkov.

    Coin is scarce about 10-15 years ago different variety can be find every 3-6 month for sale and not possible to find in choice condition .

    1)18th century in VF condition or highest grade

  8. Thank you gentelmen! The coin is indeed very striking.


    As far as the edge goes, I think it is XXXXXXXX over \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ over XXXXXXXX.

    Hi Alex,

    I agree coin just rare (mix edge).Last time I see finest 1796 R3 coin at Aalborg auction.

    Something about details of the coin looks different to me, edge is okey.

    Would be great see coin in the hands.
