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.

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? 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.
