1780 rouble


Recommended Posts

Nice for the type.


These always seem so softly struck and in such low relief. Any wear at all and they look VF or less.


I wonder why. :ninja:


Certainly the 1760's Catherine II rubles were better struck than the later 1780s coins. That has always seemed strange to me.

Do not know why. This one is MS. From Soderman collection. (this one is actually pictured in that catalog, unlike the 2 Peter I roubles I posted before.


No wear absolutely, but on the scan it looks like crap. Up close and personal, however, is another story... :ninja:
