And what's mean the Y-59.3 ??

 

So i was bought this coin: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT

 

It's ok? or too much?

 

 

Y-59.3 is the number of this coin in the Standard Catalog of World Coins. You should probably buy this catalog.

 

AU58 is better than AU55. Read more about PCGS grading on their site: http://www.pcgs.com/lingo.chtml?universeid=313&letter=0

 

$900 seems to be a fair price for your coin.

Krause-Mishler - Standard Catalog of World Coins.

Yes, for most world coins it is THE standard. However, there are many mistakes, especially in the Russian section, almost no varieties except for major ones, and the prices are hopelessly out of date. There is no single reference available today, IMHO, which has been able to keep up with the skyrocketing prices in the Russian market since about 2002 when the Bitkin reference was published.

 

Bitkin is probably the most complete Russian coin reference for the imperial period, it includes most varieties (although a few are not listed because they were discovered later) and has pricing data which was fairly accurate AT THE TIME it was published. Uzdenikov has more background information, a decent rarity scale, but no prices. The combination of Bitkin + Uzdenikov is unbeatable, although if you want to specialize in copper coins you will also need Brekke (and the supplements).
