Hi All,

I got this from the local coin shop the other day for $80. I think it is 1773СПБ ЯБ and It weights 23.24g.

 

 

Looking at the NGC world coin price guide VG8 is about $180. I believe mine is about F-12. However i just wanted to get an feedback from the experts of how much this could be worth and what you think about the coin in general.

Onslow, I think the coin is well worth the $80 :). Sure it has seen much circulation but - imagine what it may have been through in the past 240 years. If it only could speak. You own now a piece of history.

Thank you all , appreciate the information and welcome. I have been looking at the MA shops and coins about the same condition seems to be priced way higher. But that doesn't mean they will sell at that rate I guess. I don't collect coin to make a profit by reselling but I still have very limited budget, so the concern of did I do well buying. Like Sigi mentioned I love to have a historical piece and started reading about the Catherine the great which gave me an opportunaity to learn something new about the history.

True they are in the high end of the retail. In US we don't have much choice of buying World coins. I have seen coins in local coins shows much more expensive than in MA shops. The last coin show I went had only 5 dealers selling world coins out of 100.

 

I have shopped there few times but or not do expensive items. I like the quality and the risk buying her compared to ebay. Some of the s reputed ebay sellers sell coins higher than MA shops as well.

 

Perhaps you have some recommendations for dealers with fair prices who ship outside Europe ? Most of the MA shop dealers do not ship outside Europe.
