Bit of cleanup on my Imperial Russian type sets
« on: March 24, 2013, 04:33:02 AM »
I have been slacking off on my site as well as my collection as work has been hectic as usual.

Here's three different links:

Silver type set 1802 - 1917:

Copper type set 1700 - 1801:

Copper type set 1802 - 1917:

Didn't do a type set from 1700 - 1801 becaue it's likely to be expensive. Might be a good idea to keep track of what I have in my collection though.

Latest addition to this set would be this tiny coin:

Polushka or 1/4 kopek. They are unusually difficult to find.

Might start getting a bit serious on some of the easier coins to fill in the holes.

Show us some of your awesome Imperial Russian coins. :)

Thanks for the great post! Looking forward to XVIII ct silver types. I'm collecting Russia from Catherine the Great but don't have particularly interesting collection (intended to do whole empire since 1721, but price explosion in the last years did its job, as you mentioned)

Been doing some research several years ago comparing crown types of some silver coins of XIX ct. At the glance I see such varieties here as well. Many of these are quite big differences that need to be taken into account for type collectors.

BTW, I see commemorative coins are omitted from the list. Why is that?
