As promissed, here are the scans of the obverse, reverse, and the edge. There are no visible signs of the cypher 1796 10 kopeks, but the edge has signs of re-edging. What do you guys think? :ninja:

I think the coin is an overstrike, or at least struck more than once, possibly to obliterate an undertype (probably a 10 kopeks). See the obverse between 1 and 2 o'clock positions. It looks like there is a ghost image of the wreath there.

I'd say that the nice coin is double struck on both sides, see the top crown on the eagle side and the both tops of the wreath on the monogram side. I can't see any sign of a reoverstrike. It would take gxseries' eagle eyes to judge. :ninja:

There is no question the coin is at least triple struck. You could see iv pretty good on the eagle side. There is no trace of an undertype. However, if the edge is a mixed edge, then there could be no doubt that the coin is an overstrike. I would love to see the edge in person and under the microscope. Hopefully in a few weeks? :ninja:

 

There is an article by Uzdenikov who indicates that specifically for AM mint some coins can only be recognized as Paul's overstrika by its edge. If it is an overstrike, and it like like it is, it is spectacular and rare. ;)

I'm actually puzzled over what it is. For sure it is at least a double strike but I have difficulties identifying the underlying image. For a few second I thought it was an overstrike of the previous Petrovna pytak but I'm afraid it's a bit too early to say as such.

 

IgorS, would you happen to have a larger image of it? It is doable if you increase the DPI resolution of your scanner - most scanners can go up to 600DPI easily.

Hi Igor,

I'm sorry I have brought up forum after couple weeks. What exactly you can see on between 11 and 12 o’clock on obverse. I can see some multi lines from the edge , is it similar space between the lines?

Thanks, Rarenum

Rarenum, are you speaking to IgorS or to me? You say "Igor", but you quote me, which confuses me. :ninja:
