I think you're right, Evan - it should be possible to nail it down a bit as, unlike some, this has some decent diagnostic detail remaining. I think the marks between the nag's legs point towards the mint and although incomplete it looks like it could be Moscow.

Lovely to see such an unusual find :thumbsup:

Hey Figgis, its about the only thing I can actually decifer. The o above the M giving the Moscow mint.
I would dearly love to try and narrow down the date. But finding it impossible :shock: :cry:
I cannot even actually tell the script side up from down :roll:
But will continue to search

Great find 👍🏼
I do some work in Russia and was once offered some local silver coins as a gift. I still have the photos somewhere, I’ll have to dig them out to see if they’re the same / similar
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.

Brilliant ID :Star: . I’d never heard of wire money before now either. Cracking find :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
