Please evaluate my 1859 Nicholas I commem. ruble


Recommended Posts

Look at this auction result - seems crazy...




Now I have the same coin, but mine has a bit of toning, some surface abrasions, plus some guy way back decided to draw an X to the right of Nicholas' bust. Perhaps a collector's mark??? The fields show what could have been (if the coin hadn't been in a jar for many years) a proof-like finish, but this was not a proof. Also, there are apparently two versions of this coin in silver, with differences to the neck. Can anyone tell me what those differences are?
