Good morning, I'm currently appraising a large coin and currency collection but must admit I am not well versed in Russian coins. I've attached a photo of twelve 1899 Russian 10 Rouble gold coins. However, I have a suspicion that they may be counterfeit. I'd greatly appreciate any information you may have to offer. Here are the approximate specs of each coin, which is very consistant: Diameter: 22.9mm Thickness: 2.17mm Gross Weight: 7 grams From what I've read, the diameter and thickness are supposed to be 22.5mm and 2.15mm. I'm not sure if this variance is large enough to be concerned about. However, I believe the gross weight is supposed to be 8.6 grams and these only weigh 7 grams, which does set off a red flag for me. Also, there is some green oxidation on several of the coins, which I'm assuming is due to the composition not being gold. Thanks again for your help. Sincerely, Scott
Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone would like to get rid (for good pay) of the Christies 1950 auction catalog with plates, the selection from Grand Duke Georgii Mikhailovich coins and medals collection, please let me know to PM. No need of copies and PDF files ! Original only ! Thank you in advance all who respond ! P.S. If anyone would like to get rid (for money) of any other Russian specialized auction catalogs please PM me.
