gxseries Posted October 22, 2006 Report Share Posted October 22, 2006 Thought of opening a thread of damaged Russian coins. Yes I know, it's not pretty but this is how I obtained some of my scarcer coins. I don't find them totally worthless. You still don't see too many of these anyways even without the severe damage. Here are some of mine: 1720 ruble Gilted, scratched, hinged etc. 1724 ruble Still is part of a jewellery - never had the guts to remove the hoop on top of it. 1736 ruble Ex-jewellery 1798 poltina Holed, repaired, scratched. I don't remember seeing too many Paul I poltinas. 1814 2 kopek Ouch 1827 25 kopeks Quite decent details but curses to the mountmarks 1877 ruble I'm not going to complain... I bought it at silver bullion. 1988 commemorative 3 rubles Any collector would cry - was a pretty coin. Bought it less than the silver bullion and silver at that time was 7USD...
