BALTIMORE (AP) – A rare 1804 silver dollar fetched almost $3.3
million dollars in what officials say is a record-breaking coin
A five-part sale of the D. Brent Pogue coin collection that ended
Friday netted a total of almost $106.7 million.
The five auction events were held over the past two years by
Stack’s Bowers Galleries of Santa Ana, California, in conjunction
with Sotheby’s in Baltimore.
Friday’s final auction yielded about $21.4 million, including the 1804
dollar, an 1811 half cent that brought $998,750, and a 1793 Liberty
Cap cent that sold for $940,000, making it the most valuable
circulated cent ever sold.
