Lot description:


RUSSIA. Ruble Novodel, 1705 (in old Cyrillic). Moscow (Red) Mint. Peter I (the Great). NGC MS-66.
KM-122.2; Bit-H803 (R2). A Novodel without peer, this gorgeous and sublimely beautiful Gem is unmatched at the top of NGC or PCGS census, being the finest certified by two points. Painstaking artistry was poured into producing this Novodel, with the dies being heavily polished and the devices carefully engraved. Copious detail has been transferred to the flan, with not a hint of strike weakness detected. The argent and semi-reflective surfaces are occasionally graced by deeper toning that foxes and flanks the devices. Almost no marking is seen, even with the aid of magnification, and it is very hard to find fault with this beauty. A coin that reaches out and attempts to grasp at the highest form of aesthetic value. To view all items from the Sigma Collection, click here.
