The rare patch with mysterious history will be sold for millions


At World fair of the American numismatical association in Philadelphia will offer for sale one of the most rare coins in the world — five cents of 1913 with the rapped-out profile of the goddess of Svoboda. Organizers of an auction expect that its price will reach five million dollars, writes the New York Post edition. Only five such coins have remained, and their origin still causes a controversy. Officially five cents with Freedom have ceased to mint in 1912. Existence of the coins dated 1913 became known only seven years when the former employee of Mint Semyyuel Brown (Samuel Brown) has shown them at a numismatical exhibition later. It is considered that he or has made them, or I have kept the defective circulation which was released by mistake. All five coins of Brown have dispersed on collections and the museums. On August 15 in Philadelphia will offer a copy which since 1948 belonged to the famous American numismatist Luís Eliasberg (Louis E for an auction. Eliasberg), and in 2007 has been sold for five million dollars to the anonymous collector. In April it was reported that the American numismatist from New England has found a coin of five dollars which was rapped out in 1854 on mint in San Francisco. Now in their world of everything four. Their cost is estimated at millions of dollars. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
