Binion Collection – 1883 Morgan Silver Dollar, VAM-10, AU53
Binion Collection – Extremely Rare (Unique) – The 1883 Morgan silver dollar from the Binion Hoard is another of the extremely rare variety with only 3 coins being graded and authenticated. Of the 3 known, 2 are regular variety 1883 Morgan’s and 1 is the VAM-10 variety. The VAM-10 is also a Top-100 classified Morgan.
This coin and date is an excellent example on both how Binion coins are still being returned to NGC for grading upgrades and VAM identifications. The NGC Census Report 2009 only shows the population as 1 coin and it was not a VAM coin while the 2014 report identifies the population of 3 Morgan silver dollars.
