    1888 MS63 5 Roubles with A? on Truncation of Neck

    Alexander III gold 5 Roubles 1888 AГ-AГ MS63 NGC, St. Petersburg Mint, Bitkin-32 (R3), KM32 portrait with short beard. Obv. Bust of Alexander III right, AГ on truncation of bust. Rev. Crowned double-headed Imperial eagle with date and value. Extremely rare in all conditions and unpriced in Bitkin. Fully brilliant, with gleaming mint-gold color and a nice strike. A few minor contact marks are noted and the overall appearance is quite pleasing for the grade. This variety is extremely rare and almost impossible to find in nice Mint State. This is the only example certified in Mint State by NGC and PCGS combined, and it is the only legitimate Uncirculated coin that we have ever seen offered for sale. It realized $23,000 (with BP) in our January 2011 NYINC Auction 3012.
