Lot description:


RUSSIA. Ruble, 1705 (in old Cyrillic). Moscow (Red) Mint. Peter I (the Great). NGC AU-58+.
Dav-1642; KM-122.2; Bit-800; Diakov-4. Appealing in all facets, this enticing Ruble projects incredible attractivity with a clear strike and wonderful original skin to the surfaces. The details are finely grained, with a quality of production that is commendable for the type. Deep pools of mint glossiness flash light in a waxy display, and when coupled with the underlying iridescence, a feast for the eyes ensues. Only the faintest touch of circulation can be seen on the high elements of the bust, with no effacement. One would be hard pressed to find a more pleasing example than this, and this is supported by the present specimen's position at the top of the NGC population report.
