RECORD-BREAKING COIN AUCTION

BALTIMORE (AP) – A rare 1804 silver dollar fetched almost $3.3
million dollars in what officials say is a record-breaking coin 
collection auction.

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.

(AP) – Bob Dylan finally has his hands on his Nobel Literature diploma and
medal.

Klas Ostergren, a member of the Swedish Academy, said the 75-year-old
American singer-songwriter received his award during a small gathering
Saturday afternoon at a hotel next to the conference center where Dylan
was performing a concert later that night.

Ostergren told The Associated Press that the ceremony was a small, intimate
event in line with the singer’s wishes, with just academy members and a
member of Dylan’s staff attending.
