Lot description:

RUSSIA. Ruble, 1705 (in old Cyrillic)-MA. Moscow (Kadashevsky) Mint. Peter I (the Great). NGC AU-58.
Dav-1642; KM-122.1; Bit-178; Diakov-8. Surpassed by only one example on the NGC census, this impressive early Ruble of Peter the Great stands near the pinnacle for condition and desirability. Much original mint bloom remains, with a glistening sparkle that charms the eye. A somewhat soft strike accounts for the ill-defined details in the central elements, though technical wear is quite hard to spot. Evenly steely gray, the surfaces provide strong originality, and this problem free example will certainly capture the imaginations of many. An example of the popular type presented here in condition seldom seen. To view all items from the Sigma Collection, click here.
