I need your help in identify this silver coin.
Thank you very much


I think this is Russian "wire money", so called because of the method of manufacture, by cutting slivers off a rod or wire of silver.

I don't have enough knowledge to identify the ruler.


Yes, that's right, this money was also called "flakes".
This is a kopeck of the Russian Tsar Fedor Ivanovich (son of Ivan the Terrible). The reign of this king was called "Time of Troubles".
Minted in the city of Pskov in 1584-1598.
The obverse depicts a horseman with a spear, two letters PS (Pskov) below.
On the reverse there is an inscription in Old Slavonic - Tsar Great Fedor of All Rus'.

Regarding the authenticity, I can not say anything, my main interest is the coins of the Himalayan countries.
