I've heard the old phrase "dropping a dime", but here's something you don't see every day - "dropping a nickel" - specifically, the Bebee 1913 Liberty
Head nickel. Check out this new CoinWeek video where Charles Morgan interviews ANA curator Doug Mudd. -Editor
We meet up with Doug Mudd, former Manager of the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution and current Museum Curator of the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum to talk about the
Bebee-ANA Specimen 1913 Liberty "V" nickel.
Only five examples of 1913 "V" nickel are known and each one is worth well over three million dollars. We discuss the history of the piece and how the hobby came to know about them and
why the 1913 nickel always captures the public's imagination.
Everything was going smoothly... until Charles dropped the coin! No worries, though - no million dollar coin was hurt in the shooting of this CoinWeek 4K Video!
Would anyone care to explain for our younger readers what "dropping a dime" means? -Editor
