16th C. Russian Silver Coin Hoard - 116 Coins!

Eastern Europe, Russia, ca. 16th century CE. A fantastic grouping of one-hundred-and-sixteen struck coins with oblong forms and varying colors of aged silver. The front sides depict a finely-garbed man, perhaps a king, riding a horse and holding a long spear in one hand. The other sides display several rows of Cyrillic text which have been rendered illegible over time. These coins were found amongst a hoard of 444 coins in the Russian city of Tyer, and are all quite beautiful! Size of largest (all fairly similar in size): 0.5" W (1.3 cm); grade of silver: 92% or less.

Condition: All coins have age-commensurate surface wear, light tarnishing to surfaces, slight bending to overall forms, small nicks around peripheries, fading to designs on both obverse and reverse, with some coins exhibiting gray patina. Arranged in decorative design for photograph. Coins do not come in this display.
