1873 dime sells for a pretty penny: $1.6 million
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A dime made in 1873 has cost someone a pretty penny: It sold for $1.6 million at auction.
The rare coin was minted in Carson City, Nev., during a one-day run of dimes.
An anonymous bidder won the pristine coin, said Chris Napolitano, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, which auctioned it during an American Numismatic Association convention. The final price included a 15 percent buyer’s fee.
