that price, i have been after an example of thse iron kopecks for ages, the price has always been an issue, seems this one slipped under the radar, this is the 3 kopeck



hard to tell exactly what this is due to clipping,however from what detail there is it is possibly a 3 pence from the 1570's (rose behind elizabeth is what that blob could possibly be this was on 3 pences)



my first half dime, the 53 on the date is quite a weak strike so i angled the photo it has some toning but it isnt this dark

Those iron pieces (the German occupation Kopeks in 1, 2 and 3 Kopek denominations) are definitely interesting. They were once listed for dirt cheap but even then I knew to jump on a set of three unc/no rust pieces for 40 bucks a piece one time when I got first crack at a dealer's new stock. I still have one of them, the 3 kopeks (I use it in my "Russian Coins Of Conquest" exhibit). Anyhow an hour later I walked by that dealer's table again, and he said someone had already come by looking for those coins, so I was very fortunate.


(Edit--clarified which iron pieces I was babbling about)
