Approves the sovereign cradle of the Romanovs in the Ipatiev Monastery and bestows the coat of arms on Kostroma. The engraving, on a simple cylinder, tells about the May days of 1767, when the Empress traveled along the Volga in the Tver galley. The master skillfully linked together the panorama of the river, the Ipatiev Monastery; depicted a galley with an imperial monogram on a sail, a profile portrait of the queen in a medallion. He singled out the inscription of the city on the standard and in the same place, probably his initials - B.M. Designated the royal coat of arms - a double-headed eagle with orb and scepter.
