Hi, my latest acquisition is this 5kop1762. Note the many feathers.

Below see another one with (I dare say) the normal eagle.

"Normal" because the 9 pictures of the 5kop1762 in my archives all show this smooth eagle.

Which eagle has your 5kop1762? Thank you, Sigi

Nice Sigi. Yes, there are variants. The Elizabeth copper 5K is an under-studied issue, for sure. I have an example I labelled as 'unlisted eagle', however I don't have it in front of me so don't know if it's similar to yours.

 

Best

Another amazing find, Sigi! Very nice. Out of curiosity, did you see the this variety before or after you bought it? It's a remarkably different-looking type once you know what to look for.

The eBay seller had shown good pictures. I could see that his coin was better than mine (reason enough to bid) :ninja:

AND that the eagle was different, a welcome by effect. Sigi

According to catalogs the 5kop1758 without mintmark was struck in both Ekaterinburg and Sestrorezk.

All 5 kopeks 1759 through 1762 w/o mintmark were struck in Ekaterinburg only. :ninja: Sigi
