The Battle Born Collection

with 3 comments

The spotlight coin of the collection is without a doubt the Unique 1873-CC Liberty Seated No Arrows Dime, graded MS-65 by PCGS and bearing the Eliasberg pedigree. It is the only specimen known to exist, which makes it highly coveted among collectors of Carson City Mint coinage and especially those seeking to complete their own set. This much sought-after dime was purchased in 2004 for $891,250 from a Bowers and Merena auction by Rusty Goe, chief architect of the Battle Born Collection for the last 11 years, who later sold it into the Battle Born Collection, thus completing the set.
