EXTREMELY RARE COIN TO BE AUCTIONED

  


Described as the most valuable U.S. nickel in existence, a rare nickel
(above) from 1913 is expected to sell for between $3 million and $5
million at auction.

The auction house
stated the Eliasberg 1913 Liberty Head Nickel, one
of only five ever produced, will be auctioned by Stack’s Bowers
Galleries in August. “The other four 1913 Liberty Head Nickels have
gone on to private collectors and museums, including the Smithsonian”.
  

Named for Louis E. Eliasberg Sr., the banker and famed coin collector
who bought it in 1948, the nickel will be auctioned at the American
Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money, which runs from
Aug. 14 to 18 at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center.
