Sorry, but this a fake. The original of this is almost non existent.. The 1 kopek of 1762 peter III is extremely rare (see thread earlier this year on this forum, less than 10 known specimens)

 

You will find the 2 kopek, maybe 3 or 4 times a year on ebay (a guess) and the 4 kopek more frequently, but just as frequently these are faked. The 10 kopek, maybe 1 or 2 times a year on ebay. Also fakes out there. These all usually go to major auctions these days, but the dealers get them too, so check the usual Russian specialists.

 

See Alex Basok's site, rustypennies.com for a good selection of copper from this period, and be assured no fakes.

yout answers are really a treasure and a pleasure for me;

i begin i numismatics for 6 months, and this is difficult to share fakes from true coins;

but the grae of this coin looks me very lustrous for this period

thank you a lot again :ninja:

All Peter III copper is overstruck on older coins, so they are generally NOT high grade. In fact, the uglier, the better, in my opinion.

Well...most Peter III copper is overstruck. As I said in my article, mint reports show some 10Ks were struck on new flans and I see around 30% of known examples with no trace of undercoin.

... regardless of its authenticity this is a denga = 1/2 kopeck, and I am confused
