Thanks @Palouche .... It is Russian wire money! Although very interesting to look at, I don't believe I'll invest in any book purchases. Thanks again for finally identifying this coin for me.

Agreed, Russian wire money. Now you will want to know the ruler.

Looks like a silver "sword kopek" of Ivan IV (The Terrible), 1530-1584, Moscow mint struck circa 1535.

Matches the fourth coin on this page

THANKS @Seeker55 !! Now I don't have to buy anything. I only have the one coin and already have many, many books and don't need any more. Thanks again for taking your time researching this coin for me.

@That Coin Dude , I ordered the book right after I read his text. But, I just noticed it's all in Russian.

This is quite common type and it costs less than a catalog you ordered:)
