Description:
1729 Peter II Ducat

Exceedingly Rare One-Year Type
Peter II gold Ducat 1729,  Red mint, Bitkin 7 (no hair ribbon, 5 scallops) (R2), Diakov 6, IT 6 (50 Rub), Petr 1 (R-50), AU50 NGC. A splendid example of this exceedingly rare one-year type, with considerable remaining luster and sharp definition. The "no hair ribbon" variety is, by far, the rarer of the two major types for this seldom-seen issue.

Peter II had a thoroughly miserable life, losing his mother shortly after his birth, and his imprisoned father when he was only three. He was kept in seclusion until the death of his uncle, Peter the Great, in 1725.. Although he was crowned Emperor following the death of Catherine I's death in 1727, his reign was brief , as he died of smallpox in 1730.

Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.
