The Binion Hoard history is the most famous of all. I have owned some of the Binion Hoard coins and these labels sell for a premium as well.

Goofy Story:
I found one listed on EBAY in 'Antiques', with the title 'Bunion Hord'.
I lowball bid on it just to see what would happen, as I do not even collect these.
Sure enough, I won.
Knowing that a majority of 'modern day buyers' have become 'slab label collectors', I re-listed it with a 'full slab only' listing picture.
It sold for just over 3X's what I paid, to a 34 feedback buyer. The 'COIN INSIDE' was not even that nice, & W-A-Y 'overgraded', as they call it.
