Hi guys,

I need your help. I would have the possibility to buy the following roubles, it looks very nice but the price is too low in my opinion..

I have asked the guy who is selling to provide me with a picture of the weighted rouble ... he did it !

 

at the end, this rouble would weight 6,53 grams ...while in some on line catalogue I have seen that the real weight should be 6.544 grams ...

can you help me ?? do you know which is the tolerance for that roubles ? if it is original ... how much it would worth?

thanks a lot !

Ok the cleaning does nto worry me a lot. It is not so bad and I cannot see lines or scratches... the problem is ... the tolerance ! 0.015 grams ... are too much or not ?

It looks cleaned for a start but I cannot comment on the authencity. It looks good but again, I am not well versed in this type of coinage.

I have read a thread here regarding 10 roubles gold, in which a member of the forum was explaining that each he gold coins were weighted that time .. and the maximum tolerance could be 0.01 grams ...

there was a mistake ... the tolerance was 1/10 of gram.... I guess all should be ok ..... :)))

I think it was actually 0.05g but in either direction (+/-), so some coins could differ by a total of 0.1g in weight and still be OK. Uzdenikov's reference gives more details. In reality, though, there were probably some (very few) occasions when a coin exceeded this limit. 6.53g seems OK to me. And the coin looks nice ... I don't know why anyone would have to clean a gold coin, though, unless they dug it up somewhere! The pictures are not good enough to tell if this coin has been cleaned or not.
