    Description

    1820 N-13 Cent, MS65 Red
    From the Pittman Collection

    1820 1C Large Date, N-13, R.1, MS65 Red NGC. Ex: Pittman. This popular Randall Hoard variety is invariably sharply defined and typically has considerable original mint color as seen on this Gem from the John Jay Pittman Collection. The red mint color has faded slightly on both sides, yet this is a highly attractive example that perfectly matches David Akers description of nearly 23 years ago. Akers noted that Pittman purchased this piece in 1951 for five dollars. Our EAC grade MS63.
    Ex: George Bauer Auction (1951).
