Interesting mintmark. What do you think it is?mint_mark.jpg



EM from worn out dies - sometimes it looks like BM where no BM existed (the 1830-1839 copper coins). Which is your coin? Sigi

Looks like K.M. to me.


enough suspense... please show the coin!




No suspense, on contrary, I wanted to break the boredom here...


It is a Nicholas I 5 kop from 1830's. I just have this picture. I will have to find the coin to post the photographs. It is EM, because there is FX on the other side, but that E looks like a K quite a bit. This is not a BM type, which I also have somewhere. I am still wondering if it is a broken die, which it most probably is, or if someone punched in a K and then tried to fix it. After all, metal is missing from where it should have been (lover line, but is present where there should not be any metal...

An excellent guess! One that shows that You are observant and well versed in Russian Numismatics (as we well know)!!!


So I hope that my answer will be a mild surprise ;)



That is interesting :ninja: Which denomination is it? Sigi
