T1V1: 3 rivets - Mondvor mintmark

T1V2: 3 rivets - Monetnyi Dvor mintmark

T1V3S1: 4 rivets - Monetnyi Dvor mintmark - serial number 6 o'clock position

T1V3S2: 4 rivets - Monetnyi Dvor mintmark - serial number under the screwpost

They changed from 3 to 4 rivets because the crossed guns on the obverse came lose too easily when fastened only with 1 rivet

These are also fake.

Really, it seems very good quality?

Like I said, these are fairly well made fakes. Still there are some inconsistencies which give them away. 

Don't worry about the fakers, I'm sure they reap a handsome profit margin by selling them.

I recommend you study textbook authentic pieces and compare them closely. 

Feel free to dm me if you need any additional pointers.

So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
