gxseries Posted November 13, 2007 Report Share Posted November 13, 2007 I have been cleaning out and slowly cataloguing what I have. Good grief, I still haven't bothered to catalogue the entire corroded copper hoard due to my laziness. That mysterious 1795/88 MM 1 kopek has been grabbing quite a lot of my time. This perhaps is one of the more uncommon coins that you might find in a pile of Russian coins. I'm sure in Russia it might be very very common but I find it a bit tougher than most coins. Here is the image of the 1995 50 ruble coin that I am talking about: At first glance, common sense will tell you that I need to wear the right lens or too drunk. But look at the edge, this is another different matter as you can see on the right: This is actually a plated 50 ruble coin - appearently the only denomination struck in 1995. I'm not too sure why but perhaps the other coins have no obvious tell sign whereas this coin is struck on a cheaper planchet as it's plated steel. As you know, steel is quite cheap compared to Nicupro. Now I need to find the 1995 LMD 50 rubles. Perhaps that's going to be a challenge. Any of you guys collect the short period of the circulated modern Russian coins? (1992,3) They were only struck for 2 (or rather 3) years but that can be quite a challenge.
