Congratulations on deciphering one of these coins. My son's in-laws, whose first language is Russian came no further than "old Russian". Which source did you use to identify the coin?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I have a very nice catalog on Russian Wire Coins by Dzmitry Huletski. Though it does not cover the coinage of Peter the Great, the basics of reading these coins are explained sufficiently well.

Here's a reference in Russian:

Каталог русских средневековых монет со времени правления Ивана Васильевича и до шведской оккупации Новгорода, Гришин И.В., Клещинов В.Н.
Catalog of the Russian Medieval Coins from the Time of the Reign of Tsar Ivan IV Vasilievich Until the Swedish Occupation of Novgorod 1533-1617, by I.V. Grishin and V. N. Kleshchinov.

It used to be online. No more. Perhaps Pellinore may be able to obtain a copy.
