Russia, Y#22a.1, 20 kopeks, date worn off, СПБ АГ
« on: June 16, 2009, 02:16:06 PM »
I don't know if this is the right place to put this or not....may have been used for payment.
Another "what is it" question from my website:

Kellie writes: Hi,
I think this coin my be Austrian but I am having trouble verifying that. Can you help?
I have attached pictures as you should be able to see there is no date visible to help and no head either.
hope you can help.   regards Kellie


1.  I don't think it is a coin
2.  I don't think it is Austrian   :)

The reverse, under a crown, says 20 K(unreadable)
Looking at the shield on the two headed eagle my first guess was German state...
second guess...maybe Russian.

After all that I realize I am clueless  ;D

Anyone care to hazard a guess?

Dale,
Definitively a Russian coin, 20 Kopeks, period 1860-1917.

The coin is dated, though the year is illegible due to wear on this one. I think this is Y#22a.1 СПБ АГ. The possible years are 1883-1893.
