Owner Comments:

The Pittman coin with a pedigree stretching back to the Neil collection and beyond. I had difficulty matching this coin to the photographs in Larry Briggs' book. The position of the 1 in the date and the mint mark vis-a-vis the R in QUAR, lead me to term this coin a 4-D, but not with a high degree of conviction. There are three 67s out there rated higher than this coin. But this coin's wonderful toning and strong eye appeal might make it fully competitive if the judging were done on beauty alone. Bought from Stuart Blay, December 2004.
