PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — How much would you pay for a nickel? It might sound like a strange question, but a nickel in Philadelphia is expected to fetch at least $5 million next week at a local auction.
The nickel is the 1913 Eliasberg Liberty Head nickel and it’s only one of five made.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The detail on this coin compared to the others is amazing. It’s sharply struck. It’s beautiful. It’s lustrous. It’s going to make a nice addition to anybody’s collection,” Melissa Karstedt with Stack’s Bowers Galleries told Eyewitness News.
Karstedt is the consignment director and auctioneer with Stack’s Bowers, the company selling the rare piece.
“The first time we sold this coin was in New York City and it was part of the Louis Eliasberg Sr. Collection. This coin was the first in the world to break the million-dollar mark,” she said.
