1790 5 kopek overdate?


Recommended Posts


something going on with the 0 and also something at the sceptre on the obverse.


In his 1997 catalog, Tom Bakken listed 1790/8- and 1790/89 overdates. Others may exist. Your coin looks pretty much like an overdate :bthumbsup:

As to the something at the scepter, it is the result of a die clash (It happened that the two dies clashed together with no blank inserted between them).

As steel was not yet as hard as today, the harder die left an impression on the weaker one.

What we see at the scepter comes from the pine twig of the monogram side.
