What do they call those snips.....not tin snips....they cut cross-ways....like to cut the barely exposed head of a nail. 2, maybe three snips along the edges and the holder pops open.

So much for returning the label to PCGS to keep the pop reports coreect.

Agree. Wrap it in a towel first in case there are flying shards of plastic and then squeeze slowlt while listening for a pop. Turn the slab 90 degrees and repeat.

The Dremel tool with a very fine SS grind head, along the seam, works perfectly, with no damages. Cheers, RickO

I use a pair of Tile Nippers, they are made for tile but they work very well on plastic.......

I also wear a pair of saftey glasses and leather gloves, the plastic likes to shoot everywhere and is sometimes sharp after broken.
