Record Set

This rare half-cent coin was just sold for $353,000 at auction! 

The coin belonged to Mark Hillary who died in 1963 at age 20 in a climbing accident, his family only recently came across the coin during a clean out. The coin was struck in 1796. 

Alright Swings & Arrows readers quiz time. Name the cap that's perched on a stick on Lady Liberty's shoulder. 

Be back here Wednesday!
