  1. This rouble looks Ok
  2. And here is site who sells modern Chinese copies of Russian and other coins https://coinsmoscow.ru/en__category__rossija-do-1917_ac/
  3. Hello Ian, By saying Chinese souvenir I would not like to say items are really made in China. It is just common wording, however lot of modern fakes come from China. I'm not specialist in fake coins and can't say for sure when do they were made. But it looks specially for 2 first coins that replicas are quite modern. Good online catalog for Russian coins is this one: MDV https://www.m-dv.ru/en/ Regarding you warn coin. This looks much more real then previous. I would say - this one is genuine. However one alwasy need to keep the coin in hands to say for sure.
  4. And this one is also Chinese souvenir. I hop you didn't spent much for these souvenirs.
  5. Same, also Chinese souvenir
  6. Hello Ian, I have to disappoint you, but this looks as Chinese souvenir.
  7. Hello Ian These Siberian 2 kopeks exist as novodel as well. Weight looks to be correct. The inscription on the edge says: "coper Kolyvanskaya" meaning coins are made from copper mined from the Kolyvan mines (in Siberia). To be able to say more need to see the photos.
  8. Fake coins donùt have to be made from original patterns, that is why they are fake coins.
  9. Hi! I only can say that this is one more proof that NGC has no real experts in Russian coins. I have seen quite a number of slabbed Russian coins in NGC holders which even visually didn´t look as genuine coins. At the same time NGC refuses to slab coins proved to be genuine with many passes on the auctions. So this slab is not a proof that the coins is genuine. My opinion this is a fake. Or old fake.
  10. Hi, this is 2 Roubles Novodel of Peter I coin, Bitkin 3742 (R2). This type of coins is rare and only exist as Novodel, never have been in circulation, only as trial . But it looks very strange for me that this coin is in so bad condition for a coin, which never have been in circulation? Although it looks similar to genuine I have serieus doubts about this. You may have a look here on examples of this coin https://www.m-dv.ru/catalog/id,4809/prohod.html
  11. You are professional in this type of coins of course! I just ordered you book to get some more knowledge.
  12. This is coverpage of the Uzdenikov´s handbook.
  13. Hello If you take the handbook of Uzdenikov and look at 2 kopecks of Elizabeth period you can see that for SPB mint there are no letters on the coin.
