RARE! One-of-a-Kind!! A Surviving Authentic and Well Marked Czarist Imperial Russian Navy Copper Shkalik Stamped with 1/200 Identifying it as a "Kosushka" Spirit shot Holding about 2 Ounces. Stamped with the Measure Size of 1/200, Russian Imperial Double-Headed Eagle Seal, and Maker Marked.

Has a Germananic manufacturers name of "Boehmer" on the edge and another name, possibly Polish, but unreadable. Has the measure amount of "1/200" imprinted on it, and the date "1845" on either side of the Czarist Imperial Russian Double Headed Eagle Seal.
