    Alexander III Coronation Medal, 1883.

    Alexander III Coronation Medal, 1883.

    In copper ("dark bronze"), 29.4 mm wide, weighs 14.6 g without suspension. Obverse shows portrait of the Emperor, with the inscription "Alexander III, By the Grace of God, Emperor and Autocrat of All Russia". Cyrillic initials of the die maker ЛШ ("L.Sh." for Leopold Shteinman) in raised letters to the undercut of the shoulder. Reverse shows inscription "Crowned in Moscow on 15 May 1883".

    In very fine condition. There is light to moderate wear to the high points of the bas-relief, but most details of the Emperor's portrait are still nicely preserved. The lettering is perfectly crisp on both sides, and so is the imperial crown on the reverse. There is a singly small ding to the raised edge on the obverse at approximately 4 o'clock, but the medal is completely free of bumps or significant nicks. The copper has acquired very attractive uniform tone, while some of the original mint luster is clearly visible in recessed areas around the portrait and lettering. Comes with new St Alexander Nevsky ribbon mounted on Soviet era suspension device in brass.
