Sharing - Key Date Found in My Collection 15 Kopek 1942

Every so often, I come across a gem that I have no memory of putting in my collection. (Since about 1992, I've been dating & location stamping them!). This predates that. I was pleasantly surprised to find this key date, in stunning condition, in my own collection. I can only imagine the provenance that got it from the USSR to my hands more than 30 years ago. I'm sharing the story. Enjoy and maybe some of you have stunners as well in your collections!

This is a very good specimen. It is very rare for Russia in this capacity.
Costs over € 150.

The year 1942 was a bad one for humanity and in particular for Russia. The obvious place where Americans and Russians would have met would be Murmansk, the point of entry into the Soviet Union for US and British Lend-Lease deliveries.
