Bingham Collection

A collection of 10 minerals from the Bingham, New Mexico area. These specimens were sold as a suite during the Mineralogical Record benefit auction at the 1979 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and have been in a private collection since that time, offered here for the first time since the 1979 auction.  Comes with an old label indicating the suite was donated by Scott Fadrowski and Bob Thompson of Renowned Minerals.  I valued these at $1,775 individually and am selling the entire suite for $1000.
