1852-D $2 1/2 NGC AU50 ex: Pittman

DLRC #: 1977077 // PCGS #: 7765

A very low mintage issue of just 4,078 pieces, this coin hails from the collection of John Jay Pittman, a historic numismatist from the 20th Century. A man who mortgaged his house to participate in the sale of King Farouk's collection, he was known to be very precise and persistent when he found something that he wanted or needed. A mentor of mine when I met him in the late 1980s, this coin is one of the few pieces that remain pedigreed to him.
