Very rare!

In August of 1431, Vasily came to see Khan Ulugh-Muhammad asking for the grant of the Grand Duchy of Moscow. Yury arrived slightly later, asking for the same thing. The next year the dispute was ruled in favour of Vasily Vasiliyevich, which allowed him to place his name on the coins again. This is the modern reconstruction of the chronology of this anonymous issue, though it is likely that these imitative coins, analogous to the imitative coins issued in Novgorod, were minted starting as early as 1418.
