BALTIMORE, MD. (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, conducted by Stack’s Bowers Galleries of Santa Ana, Calif., in conjunction with Sotheby’s in Baltimore, ended Friday, March 31, netting a total of almost $106.7 million. The five auctions took place over the past two years. The final sale alone yielded about $21.4 million. Other highlights included 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.
