NEW ORLEANS (May 10, 2013)—More than $100 million worth of rare money including some of the crown jewels of money-collecting are on display through Saturday at the National Money Show in New Orleans.
Among the attractions are two exceedingly rare 1913 Liberty Head nickels valued at more than $5 million.
One was hidden in a Virginia closet for four decades before selling at auction last month for $3.17 million.
The other was frequently carried in the pocket of a former owner from Wisconsin so he could show it to strangers.
Other show highlights include an 1804 silver dollar valued at more than $3 million and an example of the first coin authorized by President George Washington - a 1792 half disme, an early spelling of the word dime.
