Hello,

Please advise: my friend found this coin somewhere near Ukrainian-Romanian border, near Dinuba river.

This coin does not have a line under the word "ПАРА". I have found many pictures of this coin on the Internet, and all of them have a line under the word "ПАРА".

Who is aware about this type?

I understand that quality of the photos could be better, and I will submit any additional photos if necessary.

Regards,

Aleks

Interesting find. I have never seen it.

 

I think it would be interesting to do a die comparison to see if this die ever had the line. Could be many reasons why this coin does not have the line:

 

1. Die was initially made without it.

2. Die was filled in and the line did not stamp out on the coin.

3. Some sort of die repair that eliminated the line (unlikely)

4. Tampering with the coin to create a rare variety.

 

Hard to tell from these photos. First step would be to look at it using a 40x magnification. A microscope is perfect for that. Then I would look for the same die on m-dv.ru, or another database you use. But, being that there are no die breaks I can see, it would be a tough job.

 

All in all, I think you would have better luck on some russian numismatic forum. There is a lot more of this newly dug-up material that they see...

Thank you very much for your input.

This is not my area of expertise at all, and any advise could help.
