Russia SB118-24729r.jpg

This specimen was lot 24729 in Stack's Bowers NYINC sale (New York, January 2018), where it sold for $360. The catalog description[1] noted, "RUSSIA. Ruble, 1743-CNB. Elizabeth (1741-61). PCGS EF-45 Secure Holder. Good strike with a bold portrait. Attractive old cabinet tone with considerable underlying luster and nice eye appeal." The coinage of Russia of the eighteenth century is a confusing and fascinating subject. This type, issued 1743-51 from St. Petersburg and 1742-51 from Moscow, is fairly common. The rubles of Peter II were about 28 grams but this type seems to be only 26 grams.

Recorded mintage: 944,000.

Specification: 25.85 g, .802 fine silver.

Catalog reference: KM C-19b.4; Bit-163, Dav-1677.
