  1. Searching for silver quarters in circulation I found one that I thought it is a silver quarter because of its edge, just white as all silver ones, however once I took it in my hands I realized that it bears regular date from 2000 and it is P mint (so not silver). All quarters from P and D mints have visible copper colors on its edge. But not this one. I placed it on scale and its weight is 5.84 grams - compared to another regular was 5.68. Does anyone know why this quarter has a white color nickel edge and has no copper there ?
  2. 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 ?
  3. 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 ?
  6. I found that TM and K* means : Цыбики чая торгового дома "Токмаков, Молотков и Ко"
  7. 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
