Last week Len Augsburger shared a photo of collector Louis Eliasberg and asked readers if they could identify the coin he held in
his left hand. -Editor
First to respond was Pete Smith, who writes:
What coin is
Eliasberg holding in the photo shown in The E-Sylum? My guess is that it is his 1873 CC Dime. I wanted to answer quickly in an attempt to be
the first to answer. Give me a little time and I will give you a listing of newspapers where the photo appears.

I honestly don't know the answer to the question. This image came out of the newspaper morgue & I don't have the caption.
Pete was right! -Editor
Pete Smith writes:
I am attaching a clipping from the Corpus Christi CALLER-TIMES of Sunday, September 28, 1952. The story was picked up by many papers and I suspect
there may be other copies of the picture out there.
