In 1867, thousands of people, including Mark Twain, lined up in New York City to hear a live reading of David Copperfield from its famed author, Charles Dickens. The reading, which was the first Dickens gave in NYC, was part of a nationwide tour of 76 performances that earned the author $228,000. Could this 1867 shield nickel have been part of Dickens’ substantial payday?
