This thing appeared for sale in Poland.
I do not own it, nor do I intend to buy it.



The inscription PET.ALEX RVSS.IMP refers to Peter the Great and is - as pictured - not in Russian but Latin.

There is no image of the other side and no data as to weight/diameter.

So what is it?

Very good question for the one person I know that could explain it: email image and ask Alexander Basok.
He is top notch first class good people and knows Russian coinage inside and out.
