Secrets of Famous 1913 Liberty Nickels Revealed in New Book A new book explains how a rare coin, one of only five known 1913 Liberty Head nickels and valued today at more than $2 million, was unsuspectingly kept in a closet for 41 years until recently.
"It is genuine. Congratulations. God bless you." The simple words climaxed a three-month news media frenzy and worldwide search for the fabled coin, and happily solved a 41-year old mystery about its puzzling whereabouts.
The Walton nickel is on loan from the heirs to the ANA Money Museum in Colorado Springs. It will be exhibited at the ANA Coin, Stamp & Collectibles Show in Las Vegas, October 28 - 30, 2005; the ANA National Money Show™ in Atlanta, April 7 - 9, 2006; and the ANA World's Fair of Money® in Denver, August 16 - 19, 2006.
