I’ll spare you my usual explanation of what “eureka” means and mention only that it’s Greek for “I found it.” Which is definitely true in this case: the fifth 1913 Liberty nickel was found in the closet of the family of the dealer who “lost” it in a car crash in 1962.

One of the four others changed hands in a private transaction yesterday for US$3 million.
