Russia 1897 silver Rouble Brussels mint error – “birds” on the rim; rare type; VF+ without typical dings or rim nicks; great overall condition with original light-gray patina.
Original Nicholas II era (1894-1917) silver Rouble struck in 1897 in Brussels, Belgium (should be 2 stars on the rim). During minting star rays on some of the original dies got broken off; before the damage was discovered a small quantity of these mint errors went unnoticed and ended up in circulation. This error type is called “birds on the rim” in Russian numismatics – these error specimens are hard to find in any shape or form nowadays. The coin is about 34 mm in diameter, 20 grams. About VF condition specimen with good eye appeal; typical wear, nothing major. Not cleaned with original light-gray patina; these are the actual photos.
