This specimen was lot 21777 in Heritage sale 3010 (Boston, August 2010), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "Anna Rouble 1737, Hedlinger type, Bust right/Crowned Imperial eagle with date, VF. Slightly mottled, gray patina, with a few minor contact marks. A very scarce variety of the Anna Rouble." Two types are noted for 1737; the other (Dav-1674) has no "X" on the eagle's tail on the reverse. Both are scarce. Collecting Russian coins is made more confusing by the plethora of competing catalog numbering systems.

Recorded mintage: unknown but scarce.

Specification: 25.85 g, .802 fine silver, .666 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Diakov 13, Petr 3 (10), UZD 0730, Dav-1673; KM-197.
