1729 Peter II Ducat
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.
Exceedingly Rare One-Year Type
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.

Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
