This very rare type was minted by minted by both Dmitry Donskoy and his son Vasily I Dmitrievich. Some of the coins (like this piece) are anonymous, giving only the title of the Grand Duke - they can be attributed to both Dmitry Donskoy and Vasily. Very rare and nice, with a nearly complete Russian legend.
