Would appreciate information on possible Russian Plate Money Grivna 1727.


Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I have a “coin” which I presume is a fake. It is a Russian Grivna Plate Money of 1727.
It measures about 62mm x 66mm and weighs about 167 grams. It is uniface (although there are a few fine lines near two of the edges on the back) with the standard frontal design of some plate money.It is in superb condition with no real sign of actual use.
I say that “I presume” it to be a fake as it just looks too good to be true and I am not usually fortunate enough to find a genuine Grivna for my collection. There is no real provenance as the previous owner had no real information on it.
I would appreciate your help in confirming that it is or is not a fake and the reasons for same. If it were to be found genuine it would go into my collection. If a fake would you advise me as to the probable sale value of being sold as a fake.
All the best,
Col Davidson.

I just ordered a reproduction from Aliexpress  ,  I don't think it's as big and heavy as your coin/plaque , but close to 100 gram it probably is  , and for just 5 bucks  (€)  , it's a no breaner . 

Good bargain hunting  !
