WCO Posted April 27, 2007 Report Share Posted April 27, 2007 Yes, of course I can. I will need get and return the coin from the bank vault, then upload high resolution scan.You are welcome to spend your money as you wish. My coin is not for sale. Your tastes are your tastes. They differ from mine. I care more about pleasing myself and my own collecting interests than I care about what some slabber (who probably knows a lot less about Russian coins than I do) says or thinks. However, I am quite confident that (slabbed or not) there will be many people who will be thrilled to buy my coin (when the day comes that I decide to sell), even if you are not one of them. By the way, this coin which you find so unattractive was one of a handful of coins which I purchased from Randolph Zander's personal crown collection. Zander bought it (for his own collection) in 1969 from former dealer Hal Rosenberg and held onto it (after earlier selling off the bulk of his Russian collection) until I purchased it from him in 1985. You collect what you want and what you pleased. I am not trying to persuade you to some other direction. I only "vote" that when you buy a coin, you know EXACTLY what you are buying, authentic or not, cleaned or not, damaged or not, "no grade" or a beauty and only AFTER THAT you make your design "with your eyes opened". And if you enjoy collecting damaged Dassier Rubles - I am fine with it too. I only amazed that you did care to learn that this coin has a pedigree but did not care to learn condition of coin that you purchased. Looks weird.
