NEW ORLEANS — Coin enthusiasts are getting a glimpse of more than $100 million worth of rare money including some of the crown jewels of money collecting at the National Money Show in New Orleans.

Among the attractions are two exceedingly rare 1913 Liberty Head nickels valued at more than $5 million. One was hidden in a Virginia closet for four decades before selling at auction last month for $3.17 million. The other was frequently carried in the pocket of a former owner from Wisconsin so he could show it to strangers.

The show runs through Saturday.

Other highlights include an 1804 silver dollar valued at more than $3 million and an example of the first coin authorized by President George Washington — a 1792 half disme, an early spelling of the word dime.
