by ABC News | Fri, Aug 10, 2012 12:17 PM EDT


A one-of-a-kind dime fetched $1.84 million by an anonymous bidder in an auction on Aug. 9, 2012 at the American Numismatic Association convention at the Philadelphia Convention Center. 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, the AP reported.

A dime from 1873 was auctioned for $1.84 million in Philadelphia.

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.
