Prototype of 1st US dollar coins auctioned for $840,000

This undated photo set provided by Heritage Auctions shows the front and back of a piece of copper that was struck by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia in 1794 and was a prototype for the fledgling nation's money. The item, which is known as the “No Stars Flowing Hair Dollar," was owned by businessman and Texas Rangers co-chairman Bob Simpson and was auctioned off for $840,000 on Friday, April 23, 2021, considerably more than expected, an official said.
