RSFSR&USSR sets of silver kopek aka bilon
Silver coin set from the early USSR.
There are two variations - minted in RSFSR - The Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, which was the early beta of USSR (minted from 1921 to 1924).
And the one minted in USSR (1924-1931). Weirdly, they introduced the star in its first variation and later switch to wheat spicas, not the other way around.
Coins are from circulation, some have patina, but mostly in a very good condition.
They remained legal tender up until monetary reform of 1961, but you couldn't find them anymore - people have stashed them away.
A neat tidbit is that they are called "bilon" in Russian, which most likely came from bullion.
