Jefimok Half Ruble, 1655. 15.29 gm. Counterstamped on a Saxon Taler, Dresden mint
(16)15 of Johann Georg and August. Spaskii – unlisted, Zander p. 15. This Half Ruble was made from a bisected host already counterstamped. Spasski suggest that this halving of already counterstamped pieces reflects a step to salvage some badly cracked Jefimoks by cutting away the damaged half. Extremely rare. Pleasing medium gray
Extremely fine.
