A unique dime went under the hammer Thursday night and sold for a record $1.84 million.
The rare coin was offered by Stack’s Bowers Galleries, the official auctioneer of the Philadelphia ANA World’s Fair of Money.
As the most expensive dime ever sold at auction, the coveted 1873-CC No Arrows Liberty Seated dime went to an anonymous bidder during the sale of the Battle Born Collection, which includes 111 coins and is one of just two complete sets of Carson City coinage ever assembled.
Auctioning of the Battle Born Collection occurred as part of Stack’s Bowers Galleries Rarities Night Auction at the ANA World’s Fair of Money held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
The coin and paper money show kicked-off Tuesday, August 7, and ends Saturday, August 11, at 4 p.m. ET. Admission is free to members of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and $6 for non-members.
Embedded is a short video describing the 1873-CC No Arrows Liberty Seated dime, which was certified by PCGS as MS-65.
