Better photograph of the obverse would help.


However, this is certainly a kopeck of Peter the Great as one-kuna says. It is from the Kadashevskii monetnyi dvor, but the exact year depends on what is written below the horse. Often it is possible to determine the year of issue from the type of horse, but this photograph does not allow to do so.


Most people are curious to know what their coin might be worth of in the market. Even if the year of issue is clearly visible a coin like this will sell rather modestly. If it is only possible to trace a (missing) date by the type of the obverse the coin will not interest the majority of collectors at all. If it turns out the date is visible and interesting, e.g. the last year of issue 1717 - that is another matter, but the chances are low.
