I picked this one up recently. Looks to me that the usual SPB mintmark is misleading. I believe the coin was made in Odessa on Malaya Arnautskaya street ;)



and sold on Deribasovskaya avenue :ninja:

Actually Deribasovskaya is higher rent district, but seriously I have seen this type of stuff for sale on Potemkin Steps. That is the place to buy all the klitchy Soviet junk - for sale mostly to tourists. Deribasovskaya is less business now compared to 7-8 years ago, economy problems hit Ukraine hard.
