You're presenting coins that I've never seen before.Somewhere in "The Living Room", some of us posted in a topic on how our interest in coins developed. It would be fascinating if you added a piece too.
Quote from: Zantetsuken on November 06, 2009, 04:24:41 PMSadagura coins are usually found in very poor condition with most of the detail being very weak to non-existant, especially on the shields and crown. Except for the scars left from having been mounted, the 1773 specimen is in virtually mint condition.

Quote from: gxseries on February 04, 2011, 05:43:01 AMThe first example is a pattern 3 dengi coin, first struck in 1771. The second one is more interesting - all Sadagura coins were supposedly recalled back to Moscow to be either melted down or overstruck. Of course it's cheaper to overstrike coins. Moscow mint was reopened in 1795 (last coin struck was in 1789) to overstrike coinage not suited back then. You would think there would be plenty of these overstruck coins but trust me, it's not THAT common. Probably less than 20 known.
