||Alexander II gold 3 Roubles 1875 C??-HI, Bitkin 37 (R), Fr-164, MS65 NGC. A sharply struck example with pleasing surfaces and soft rose-gold patina. The gold 3 Roubles, struck only during the reigns of Alexander II and III, are quite popular as a type, very scarce in all conditions, and extremely rare in Gem condition (such as the piece we offer here). This superb piece, with the hint of toning over fully original luster, exhibits exceptional eye-appeal with near-flawless fields.
