Lot description:


RUSSIA. Ruble Novodel, 1720 (in old Cyrillic). Moscow (Kadashevsky) Mint. Peter I (the Great). NGC MS-66.
KM-157.4; Bit-H332 (R3). Leaving an immediate visual impact, this entrancing Novodel displays quite well with a soft and almost glowing luster and uncommonly exceptional detail. The devices and legends are fully pressed into the flan with resounding clarity, leaving virtually nothing wanting. The surfaces provide a pastel tone, which softens the luster to a more reserved radiance. A single fault is seen on the bust of Peter, though outside of this, flaw or demerit cannot be found, as evidenced by the grade. A piece that can count both beauty and the fabled RARITY of a Novodel, and given these merits, we have lofty expectations for this Ruble, as certainly no shortage of collectors will be eager to add this to their advanced collections.
