Rick's Pedigree Coins – 1879-S MS66 Binion Morgan Silver Dollar - Coin of the Week


My coin of the week is an 1879-S Binion Morgan silver dollar graded by NGC as MS66.  There were only 273 coins dated 1879-S graded and authenticated in the Binion hoard and of those only 16 were graded as MS66 (only 2 coins with higher MS grades; 1 MS67 and 1 MS68).  The low population and high grade for this coin makes it a prized addition to any Binion collection.

The example shown below is one of the 16, 1879-S Binion’s graded as MS66 by NGC.
