Siberia 10 Kopek edge

The coin is suspect because of the milling, the devices are too "neat" and the flan too clean and free of metal irregularities. These coins were minted in what was then far out in the sticks, so much so that they were also made a bit smaller because they had trace amounts of gold and silver which could not be separated from the copper mined at Kolyvan during that time. Have a look at the bottom coin in this image:

Notice the irregular flan of the piece, particularly where "Moneta" in the legend is, this is very common with especially the larger sized and denominated coins like the 5 Kopek and 10 Kopek.

 

Couple all that with the stuff the seller sells, and their feedback and you wonder how it is possible that people actually bid this up to $153 at the time I noticed the auction.
