Image result for rare nickel sold at auction wednesday

(Fox News) – An extremely rare nickel up for auction in Philadelphia fetched
$4.56 million from an anonymous buyer Wednesday.

The Stack’s Bowers Galleries offered the Eliasberg 1913 Liberty Head Nickel
for auction during the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of
Money.

According to Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries,“This is
truly a momentous sale and one for the history books.” He said “The new
owner of the Eliasberg nickel now possesses one of the rarest, most valuable United States coins, and one of only three examples of this coveted coin in
private hands.”

The coin is named for financier Louis E. Eliasberg, who bought the coin in
1948, and amassed one of the greatest coin collections in U.S. history.

This special nickel is one of only five ever produced at the Third Philadelphia
Mint.
