extant4cell Posted April 11, 2020 Report Share Posted April 11, 2020 Officially SPb mint did not issue 2 kopecks of Elizsaveta past 1759. However, as we know reports aren't always correct... I found a picture of this 1760 coin on one of Russian forums, where it was identified as Moscow mint, which would be expected. If you only look on the coin type (scroll with inscription under St. George, plus overstrike in 1760 could only mean Moscow mint). However, apart from that, the coin is actually screaming (to me at least), that it was made with dies from Saint Petersburg mint. See for yourself: numbers 1 and 7, the form of St. George, overstrike on SPM kopeck, the form and angle of scroll ends - typical for SPM coins: Saint Petersburg mint 1759 2 k. Coin in question (1760 SPM) coin from Moscow mint coin from Ekaterinburg mint This is something interesting that I discovered today, thought to share with you, guys... Happy hunting!
