We have a group of these available at this time, with those illustrated being very typical of the group.  The price is per coin

These small coins are commonly known as wire money as they were struck on flans cut from lengths of wire.  All have shear marks at the ends, resulting from how the wire was cut up.  The flans are generally smaller than the dies, so only very rarely will very well centered specimens with everything on the flan be encountered (never for some issues).   I selected these from a large group in order to find those with a reasonable part of both sides showing.

Denomination : Silver Kopek.

Date
: Most of these are from the time of Peter the Great in the later 17th century, but a few might be earlier 

Size : average about 11.5 x 7.5 mm. Weight : 0.3  grams.

These are fairly small coins.

Grade : VF but only part of the design shows on any one coin (as always for this type).

Obverse : Horseman riding right.

Reverse
: Cyrillic inscription naming the Czar.
