I'm getting confused regarding this 2 Kopek -

While trying to compare it with the pictures in Brekke, I seem to see several varieties of eagle wing shapes and reverse leaves. Is it possible to establish the exact date of manufacture?

 

 

Thanks to all,

Bill

It appears to be from the Izhora (IM) Mint of 1811–1814.

Bill, you just reminded me of this coin that I have in my collection:

Another error coin from the Izhora mint. How interesting!

 

Bill - wanna try scanning it at 1200 dpi like how you did with your overstruck error coin? I'm sure there are suprises waiting to be found. (I did promise to write something about it :ninja: )

 

QXseries,

 

Right. I'll scan this one at 2400 dpi too. Maybe it WILL disclose something hidden by the 2nd strike.

 

Good idea.

 

 

Bill

 

 

P.S. - Sometime in June though. We are off to visit the 'kids' this very weekend. ;)

too bad that there is a coma under И, otherwhise it could be the rariest in a series ИМ-ПС 1811-1814 :ninja:
