Thanks! :art:


This one (lot 2270, 1913 Tercentenary Romanov rouble) is not "high relief, Bitkin 336", but low relief -- Bitkin 335. Look at the last segment of the chain running close to the rim on the right, obverse side ... short, not long.


Would you grade this one MS-64 with all the scratches (look at Nikolai's forehead and other areas close by)? :confus: ... I wouldn't ... Of course, it is much more difficult to find flat strikes of this series in anything better than AU, than of those in high relief striking. Nevertheless, I see this as a prime example of "market grading".
