An anonymous bidder scored the rare dime for $1.6 million in an auction at the American Numismatic Association convention at the Philadelphia Convention Center on Thursday night. The final price of $1.84 million includes a 15 percent buyer’s fee.
Chris Napolitano, president of Stack's Bowers Galleries, said there was above-average interest with this coin, which was minted during just a one-day production run at the Carson City Mint.
"We had four or five buyers [offering] over a million dollars," he told the Associated Press.
The 1873-CC "No Arrows" Liberty Seated dime was previously part of the Battle Born Collection, which contained one of every coin minted at the Carson City Mint before it closed in 1893.
