John Jay Pittman wasn’t a man of great financial resources but amassed one of the finest collections of United States and world coinage ever assembled. He worked as a chemical engineer for Eastman Kodak Company but spent much of his time as an ambassador for the hobby of numismatics. Between 1997 and 1999 his collection was sold at a series of three public auctions for prices totaling more than $30 million.
