Please help identify this!?


Recommended Posts

I got this coin in a junk bun, it was covered in what appears to be the same kind of corrosion that zinc goes through. I cleaned it (Shudders), and this is what I found underneath. It appears to be copper coated with my guess is zinc. My guess is it was a counterfiet made to look silver. But I don't know enough about Russian coins to say for sure. Please have a look at the photos and let me know what you think it is.

BTW it is made of zinc, previously cupro-nickel, but because of WWI, zinc then.


That's what I figured, the copper coloring on the Rev. threw me off though, maybe just odd coloration there?
