The planchets of this series were made from salvaged metal, some consistency in the crude execution shows the early Soviet minting ability. The dies were extremely crude and I have often thought the planchets were cast.
If you've ever tried to attribute these then you know it can be tough. There are a few stand-out features (i.e. reversed '200) and then again there's this. With the many variations from those shown in any reference you just have to do the best you can and wait for further info. See the others, enlarge each one, keeping them in the que so that you can view them side-by-side. One of the big advantages over any other site. At the end of '08 I purchased this one from a dealer in Cheng Du, Szechuan for the most I ever had to pay for one of these crude 200's, $170.00, I find them fascinating! I usually don't discuss the price here unless it's the occasional auction snag. I mention it now because, with the rise of the Chinese economy, prices have risen quickly.
