Help Please...have this Coin and am confused!


Recommended Posts

I just got this Moneta. Its from 1752. I have a few of these from other years, but this one has an E on the lower left side of the eagle. Why is that E there? Does anyone know what it means? Thank you so much!

It would appear that the Chinese counterfeiter who made this specimen got his dies

mixed up. The letter E on the reverse was used only at Moscow and stands for

Egor Ivanov. The St. Petersburg obverse used on this piece requires mintmaster

initials with 2 letters.
