A number is extremely hard to come up with.

VAM 2B is a neat variety that doesn't come up for sale very often. Redfield holders also have their own cachet and collector base, which is where I think most of the value is for your coin, but I am not familiar with that market and I know the toning the holder puts on coins can turn off some buyers.

The few (just 4) previous VAM 2B sales I have (none of them Redfield) and excluding one where the buyer got horribly screwed, show only minor premiums over generic price. The Heritage archives has 21 1890-S MS63 Redfield holder coins going back to 2012, but none of them were attributed as VAM 2B. Prices have come down a lot the last couple of years; the last 3 sales were $192, $228 and $210.

Maybe you can get a VAM premium from someone here on the boards, or maybe not.
When in doubt... don't.
