1873 Dime Sold for $2 Million

A dime made in 1873 sold for nearly $2 million at an auction in Philadelphia.
The unique coin was minted in Carson City, Nev., during a one-day run of dimes.
An anonymous winning bidder paid $1.6 million for the pristine coin, plus a 15 percent buyer's fee.
The 1873-CC "No Arrows" Liberty Seated dime was auctioned during a convention of the American Numismatic Association.
It's part of the Battle Born Collection, which contained one of every coin minted in Carson City before the facility closed in 1893.
