Siberia 10 kop 1767/6 KM overdate


Recommended Posts


The pits in the field is not corrosion - according to  Mr Сергей Старовойт, author of  Сибирская Монета 1766-1781,  they are not uncommon for early uneven flans (1766, 1767).

See close up below.

Very interesting theory:ok: I know too little of coin production at the time. Maybe the planchet was so uneven that striking did not flatten it smooth ?

What counts for me is that the coin's appearance is natural - not caused by heavy corrosion. Not a beauty but interesting. :rolleyes:
