The VAM Dollar Legacy Collection. The hoard was assembled by one of the Northwest's top Numismatists Gene L. Gene had over 50 plus years dedicated to the coin business in the Seattle area and was a mainstay at all the major coin shows in the United States. During his career Gene accumulated an inventory estimated to contain over 135,000 Silver Dollars making it the largest discovered hoard since the famous Redfield Hoard.
This hoard was discovered after his unfortunate and untimely death last year by the executors of his estate. NGC one of the worlds leading grading services was in agreement that a collection of this magnitude should be recognized with it own private labeling in honor and recognition of this incredible hoard and to etch the legacy of this numismatic pioneer in coin history. Two labels have been created for this hoard The Great Northwest Collection and The Gene L. We have labeled his incredible VAM dollars in the LEGACY holder.
Gene was one of the top VAM dollar collectors in the country and contributed his findings to many of the publications about VAM's. His vast collection was also photographed as plate coins in books written about this area of collecting. Gene was looked up to by many in the VAM world. His knowledge of the U. Silver dollar and its die varieties was among the best.We are anticipating that this collection will take several years to sort, grade and market. There are a great number of various dates and mintmarks represented in this collection ranging from common dates to rare dates. We hope you will enjoy these coins and secure them for your collection. Redfield as well as Binion hoard dollars have gained tremendous popularity over the years and demand huge premiums.
We can only hope the GENE L. HENRY hoard takes it place in Numismatic history.The item "1886-O VAM 1A NGC AU 55MORGAN SILVER DOLLARGENE L HENRY LEGACY COLLECTION" is in sale since Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
