Hi Guys,

 

Were there any overstrikes of poluskas in 1731? I bought a polushka very cheaply that does appear to possibly have another design underneath the main obverse design. I apologize as my camera situation is still a mess. Any general information would be helpful.

 

Thanks!

Pretty much all 1731-34 polushkas and dengas are overstrikes.

Alex, I see that you have an overstruck coin with many of the old details remaining. So far, I have been able to find what looks to be one of the arms of the cross but I have not looked very hard at the coin yet. At least knowing what the under-coin should be will help me trace the lines to their original terminal points and hopefully find a date or lettering underneath the wreath.
