    Hey all! So I got the opportunity to visit the head office of MMTC-PAMP, had a chat with their officials followed by a surprising new product that they are launching for the festive season
    The vlog is in Hindi but you can certainly enjoy the experience, I should guarantee that. Please drop a like if you liked the product or my vlogging technique

    For the early sovereigns there are no difference that make them stand out. So they only way they will designate the early coins is if they are completey mint sealed which is very rare for these early sovs . This is why there are no sotd coins listed on the ngc census prior to arou s 2015 or so when they were able to tell the difference without being mint sealed. I submitted a 3 coin sotd set that had full photo documentation but as it was not mint sealed they wouldn't flag it as sotd version. Thankfully the rm now make the new sotd sovs unique so it's not a problem for new ones.

    It depends a bit what size you are after:
    1901-1904  5 Roubles are plentiful and can be had at a decent grade (MS64-MS66!) for very little extra in a slab for your own reassurance.
    1899 10 Roubles are the most common year but usually quite worn. Due to the portrait design they remain still very recognisable. I happen to have a spare one of this year, if interested. 
    7.5 and 15 Roubles are a one year issue only based on the LMU standards (20/40 Franc), highly sought after and very expensive, in particular the 7.5 Roubles coin. 
     
    In general genuine coins are struck extremely sharp (letters and legend pattern) with residual lustre around the lettering. Also the edge inscription is very clear and deep with “lustre”. If size and weight match the expected values, you should have a genuine coin in hand.

    Looks authentic and like a proof: the fields are polished, the design is frosted and bolder than the one on the circulation issue. If any it is a bit hazed up – you could have it conserved and graded but bear in mind that the cost for that is quite high (£60+).
    However, if it is a proof, you should NEVER EVER attempt yourself to doctor the coin. So either leave it untouched or have it professionally treated if you think the increase in value is worth the investment.

    Can you get a sharp picture of the edge lettering?
    it looks proof like but there was a series of “restrikes” of rare Gold Mark and the edge lettering is usually the giveaway

    Da hat das Übersetzungsprogramm wohl versagt: Bevor hier die ersten Unkenrufe kommen: ich hatte bewusst nach der am schlimmsten mit „Milchflecken“ befallenen   Münze gefragt. Ich möchte anhand dieser meine Theorie über die Entstehung dieser „Milchflecken“ prüfen (und vermutlich scheitern) und welch zweckdienlicheres Exemplar könnte man dafür verlangen...?
    Diese weißen Flecken sind ein massives Problem bei modernen Silbermünzen und ich hoffe, dass keines Deiner wunderschönen Exemplare je diesen derzeit irreparablen Defekt entwickelt.

    Thank you... all right. Then I had taken it wrong. Anyone who collects modern silver coins also has to struggle with milk stains.
    The problem is very annoying, unfortunately.
    Thank you for your clarifying answer.
