If you are bidding on any of them from these sellers, make sure you seek advice. Chances are you are better off winning the lottery instead of getting a random piece of metal (questionable "silver")

There's more but this is a head start.

These sellers are getting smarter. They will blend in genuine coins in their sales to believe that they have a hoard of "decent" coins.

 

Take for instance some of the coins he / she has sold.

And then a very similar Spitsbergen coin is sold by this seller.

Here are a couple of articles with regards to the counterfeits. I know this is not Russian numismatics but there's no reason to suggest why it cannot be applied to other coinage.
