What is the error on this Russian 1840 kopek?

Can you see where the error is? A bit of Russian would help but you can compare it against a picture and see what the error is.

Is there no sign of the missing stroke? No ghosting, no die break?

The dot between E and M seems to be filled in. See also this thread. Here is Prosit's coin.

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

Don't know any Russian but just comparing pics - are the two "II " after the KO supposed to be connected at the top?

Probably not relevant but it's interesting to note that the number 4 touches the 8 on Peters example whereas on gxseries there's a noticeable gap

The П in the denomination is missing its crossbar. To me the diagonal in the Й of the same word seems very faint, too, but at least it's kind of there.

Some already got the answer - it's definitely the letter "P".

I'm not too concerned about how close some characters are next to each other or missing dot as you can call them varieties. But the letter "||" for "P" is a neat glaring error.

Still on the hunt for more unusual error coins. :)

No stop after date and on reverse there is a stop above and to the left of 1 on the other coin but not on yours
