Hello,

I recently purchased this coin after I noticed it was double struck on the obverse. However, after I received it I also realized it is larger than my other ones. After weighing both coins I saw that the error coin is surprisingly lighter than the other one I have. Any idea on what sort of error I am dealing with?

Can I get some help on making images embedded in the post? I don't seem to understand the guide.

1. Go to the bottom of this page. You should see a dialogue box that you can type in. There are 3 buttons below said dialogue box, and you need to click the last one.

2. When you click that last button, it will bring you to a mostly light-gray page where you can see emotes on the left hand side. There will be another dialogue box in the middle of this page, next to the emotes.

3. Below that dialogue box, there are 4 blue (or maybe purple) hyperlinks (clickable pieces of text)

4. The very first hyperlink is titled “Upload Image” and has a small picture of a green camera next to it. Click that.

5. A new tab will be opened on your browser and there are two buttons at the bottom of it. The topmost button uploads an image. Click that.

6. If you are on a computer, it will open your file browser. Before all of this, make sure you have named your image(s) something easily memorable. Type the name of your desired image into your desired image-to-upload, and click OK. If on a mobile device, it will ask you to open your image library. Allow it to access to your library, and choose the image you want to upload. Click DONE.

7. Go back to the tab that was opened by the hyperlink (the one with 2 buttons) and click the bottom button.

8. The tab will be redirected to either a success or failure page. If a success, click the “close window” tab as this page isn't needed anymore. If a failure, there are two things that may cause it. Either the file is not a compatible file type, or the file is too large. To make the file smaller, use the image optimiser provided on the failure page.

9. When you have successfully uploaded a file, click “Post new reply.”

Can you please post a photo of the reverse?

This particular year 1763 is known for overstriking coins from earlier era, in particular on 1762 10 kopek which was previous overstruck on 1757 - 1761 5 kopek.

Hello gxseries,

That is very interesting. I apologize for a delay in responding. Can you point me to a source where I can learn more about this error. Also, how would I go certifying this coin and would that be a good option?

Thank you!
