finally got the seller to negotiate down [only took most of the pandemic] and ended up 25% lower than original asking on this beautiful coin celebrating 150 yrs since the first russian postage stamp - they even threw a 1989 soviet proof shevchenko rouble in the box

2008
3 roubles
leningrad mint
silver .925, 31.1g
gold .999, 1.55g
mintage 8000

    agreed - I liked how ornate it was - and have really enjoyed other stamp-themed coins, like various countries' penny black commems

    The depth of field is nice, especially the shadow behind the pen. It's a proof coin correct? Peace Roy

    is a proof coin - yes, really like how they used the field for the shadow there - looks pretty flawless under 30x loupe; one of the best condition slavic coins I've received off the bay
