Here it is -- enjoy looking!

 

1781/0-EM

 

Picked this one up for a very reasonable price in a "Buy it Now" auction on eBay. It wasn't advertised as an overdate, but fortunately there were good enough auction pictures to see it. :ninja:

Thanks, Steve. :ninja: BTW, are there any plans to do an RNS article about copper overdates, or have there been any published in the past?

Hi Bob. I wasn't planning to write one any time soon (too many other articles on the pipeline). The Brekke/Bakken supplement has tables which are often quoted but they probably need updating with the new discoveries that are published in the JRNS as they appear. Personally I think it would be good for new tables or even a general overdating article ;)

However, RWJ is editor of the JRNS so he's a much better person to ask.

There are no plans at present for such an article but I know that Tom Bakken is still planning a

further update to the Brekke work on copper. Tom has been very thorough in listing overdates

and I expect the next work, when published, will be as complete as possible

 

In RNS Journal 70 (summer 2000) I did an article on the 5 kopecks of Ekaterinburg issued from

1763 to 1796 and listed all of the overdates known to me at that time. There are two main varieties of the

1781/0 overdate, for example, one on a 40mm planchet and the other on a 43mm planchet. (The

EM mint was experimenting with different size planchets in the early 1780s to determine the best

size for improved die life.)

That's very good news! :ninja:

Thanks, RWJ ... I must have that back issue somewhere here at home.

 

This coin has a diameter of 41 mm and weight of 45.4 g ... I suppose it would be the first variety, then?
