  1. This one is on eBay. What is experts opinion? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/190870021219?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1426.l2649
  2. Please have a look at this "coin" The seller stated that: "The ruble was bought on silver scrap, the Russian coins I don't understand so look, an original coin or not the original!" http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Rassia-Ruble-1729-Petr-II-/251303078677?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item3a82d4ab15 What do you think? Fake or not fake? By the way, The seller also has a copy of Peter I and few other "coins" http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Russian-Novelty-Coin-Based-on-Early-1700s-1-Ruble-featuring-Peter-the-Great-/251303092667?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item3a82d4e1bb
  3. I'm hunting for decent Alexander III rouble for sometime. Found this one for about 150 US$. Any advise?
  4. This is an example of few 100% genuine coins available now. Thank you everybody for valuable comments and great link. http://www.m-dv.ru/
  5. Seller's selection is very impressive.
  6. You can buy one, its still 56US$ Anyway, fake it or not my gut feeling said to sent it back. Seller already refunded me. instead I bought 1812(YEAR!) from reputable German dealer.
  7. This is just posted coin from "another seller" Both sellers live in the same area and on few occasions bought from each other
  8. another image of purchased coin
  9. another image of 1817 rouble
  10. I bought it on eBay for 113.50 US$ Just found another 1817 Rouble looking very similar from "different seller" but from same NYC location! http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1817-RUSSIA-SILVER-1-ROUBLE-COIN-/400521155528?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item5d40ebd3c8 Coincidence.
  11. Recently I bought very nice Leopold I 5 Francs 1851. His Wiki portrait looked like one of portraits of Russian Heroes of Napoleonic wars. His Wiki biography is very interesting. In 1795, as a mere child, Leopold was appointed colonel of the Izmaylovsky Guards Regiment in Russia. Seven years later, he became a major general. When Napoleonic troops occupied the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg in 1806 Leopold went to Paris. Emperor Napoléon I offered him the position of adjutant, but he refused. Instead, he took up a military career in the Imperial Russian Cavalry. He campaigned against Napoléon and distinguished himself at the Battle of Kulm at the head of his cuirassier division. He received Golden sword for his bravery at Leipzig. In 1815, at the age of 25, Leopold reached the rank of lieutenant general in the Imperial Russian Army. He became King Leopold I of Belgium in 1831. Some generals deserve to become kings.
  12. Yes, weight was right (20.8)
  13. Due to the fact that I left Russia many years ago, I was unable to bring my father coin collection with me. One of his coins was 1818 Rouble. Recently, I bought 1817 Rouble and unfortunately have some doubts about it authenticity. I would appreciate if members have a look and comment.
  14. This is a link to Russian "ebay" type of site with special section "dedicated" to copies and replicas. Quality of some items are very good. http://molotok.ru/monety-kopii-repliki-110755 Bellw, see attached images of the copy/replika of Alexander II memorial medal
