After 73 Years, Rare Nickel Reappears by Michele Norris
All Things Considered, July 30, 2003 ·
A 1913 nickel has long been a sort of Holy Grail of coin collecting.
Only five Liberty Nickels were ever made. The locations of
four of them have been known for some time. But at a convention
of coin collectors in Baltimore Wednesday, the secret of the
missing fifth Liberty Nickel was revealed. Michele Norris
talks with Donn Pearlman, a coin collector and former member
of the American Numismatic Association's Board of Directors.
