Owner Comments:

The Pittman coin, lot 1305 in that sale and the finest of three 1842 large date quarters in the Pittman collection. JJ Pittman actually bought this coin as a proof but eventually concluded it was only mint state. Only! Wonderfully toned, wonderfully struck although all stars do not exhibit full radials. David Akers thought this possibly was the finest known of the date. It is presumptuous of me to disagree with David Akers but on another matter it looks to me as this coin should be listed as a Briggs 1-B variety not the 2-B posted in the Pittman catalogue. The difference is the 8 in the date does not look recut to me. Bought January 2000 in the same Bowers and Merena sales as the 1841 in this collection, lot 137.
