I've been asked by a YN friend of mine to post this here for authentication. They've been offered this for 10,000 rubles by a guy who (according to them) doesn't look good at numismatics.

I think it's fake, but what's your opinion?
I apologize for the picture quality, their pics, not mine.

I would also say genuine, but probably harshly cleaned.

10,000 ruble does sound like a good deal if it's determined to be genuine

I am still looking for a lower grade 1898 and 1912 commemorative ruble. Getting a bit too expensive these days...

I have seen many of these. It is a Numismatic Forgery made to deceive collectors.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Counterfeit-.../1500497177/ or from me directly if you want it signed.
