Russia, Alexander I Patina 1825 Pewter
This outstnading Alexander I 1825 ‘Rouble’ is from ‘The Imperial Russian Patina Collection’ and is struck in Pewter. This looks like silver but is much harder to strike, so the minters don’t use it all that much. A Patina is a retro-pattern to show what a Russian Crown or Rouble might have looked like at the time, had they been struck. These are top quality, extremely well engraved pieces, crownsized and struck in Proof Pewter. Forget what a piece like this would normally sell for, you can have this superb Alexander I 1825 ‘Rouble’for an excellent price.
