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).

That looks like the result of flaws in the copper from too much cooling from furnace to the next process.

It must have been very cold in Siberia that day.  (What are the odds?)  

Very cool overdate ☺️

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:
