Originally, the metro tokens of Nizhny Novgorod had the same technical specifications as those of Leningrad/St. Petersburg. That was a bad idea, because the tariffs differed and so these tokens came to be holed. The process left impressive stress marks, suggesting that the knife was not as sharp as could have been.

Brass, 4.2 grams, 23.4 mm.

The Smith's have very little information on Russian tokens.

Here is their Russian section in its entirety.

Hi,

here are two from ST. Peterburg, which I got from a friend there in 2017, when I visited him. BTW the old 20 centimes coins from France works very well in their metro (his saying!!!).

The first is from the 60 years celebration of the metro in 2015, in the funny field, you can see either 1955 or 2015, depending how the incline the token.
The second is just their normal token.

The upper token is a souvenir. By 2015, the metal tokens no longer worked in the turnstiles. The second token is a later variant (small separation marks, small font) of a type that was in use around 1991 to 2006.
