RUSSIA, NICHOLAS II, GOLD 1896 25 ROUBLES (2 1/2 IMPERIALS), XF DETAILS, DAMAGED, EDGE FILING NGC. 32.21 grams. KM-YA65, Fr. 171, Bitkin-312 (R2). Lettered edge: 7 Zolotnik, 77.4 Dolya, no mint master's initial. This is a special commemorative issue with a mintage of just 300 pieces, all struck as proofs. A very rare issue that is seldom encountered in any grade. Ex: Charles E. Dearnley Collection; purchased from a Philadelphia dealer circa 1930. Dearnley was a well travelled individual who was president of Dearnley Brothers Worsted Spinning Company, worsted yarn manufacturers and distributors in Philadelphia where he was born in 1892. As well as being a prominent coin collector of the time, he was the Director of Rotary International cut short by his death in 1961. The surviving family has retained possession of this coin since his death, thus this example has been off the market since the 1930s.
