The second of two astonishing sales of Russian coins, consigned by the Soviet Philatelic Agency and presented as duplicates. Essentially, Tolmatscheff-Sosnowski and Werschinin formed an outstanding and comprehensive collection by making selections from various institutional holdings. Especially rich in rare gold and silver coins of Kiev. Zander, in his “Collector’s Selective Guide to Russian Numismatic Literature,” described the sales as “a stunning series with many great rarities.” This catalogues focuses most heavily on the 18th-century coinage.
