Looking to drop a few million on the coin of your dreams? Herritage Auction Galleries of Dallas, Texas has announced that the Walton specimen of the 1913 Liberty Head nickel will be going on sale at the Central States Numismatic Society convention in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, Illinois on April 25, 2013. Professional Coin Grading Service has certified the famous Walton 1913 Liberty Head nickel with a grade of PCGS Secure Proof-63. In order to do this, PCGS brought together the same experts who first authenticated the previously 'missing' coin in Maryland in 2003. According to the press release, "The acclaimed Walton 1913 Liberty nickel is the world's most publicized rare coin with national and international headlines from its surprise appearance on July 29, 2003 after being 'lost' for four decades. It has generated many subsequent stories wherever it's been publicly exhibited ever since," said Don Willis, President of PCGS, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc.
