I have always believed in the power of the group conscience, so am soliciting your opinion. I have been offered this coin by a private seller. He says this 1763 2 Kopek is an overstrike (clearly, it is) on a (year unknown) 4 Kopek of Peter III. What do you think?

It's nice, but is a relatively common coin. I personally wouldn't pay anywhere near that much.

Steve,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. Seller is asking $120. Reasonable?

 

Thanks!

I agree. This is an interesting coin as regards the interplay of the host coin's design and the overstrike - but it is not nice.

Surfaces are raw (from removed corrosion?) and doctored (dark toned, maybe laquered?).

The coin is not rare. Nicer ones can be found at less (if you can wait a little - but what collector likes to wait...... ;) )
