NGC Photo Certification, the slab "orphan" never talked about.
I was looking through some stuff I had squirrelled away and I came across two NGC Photo Certs from about 2003-4, a style of "slab" that I don't find in any searches about slab generations. I suppose some might argue that it wasn't a slab but it is identical in format to what ANACS and other services did prior to encapsulating the item in a plastic holder. They were sort of a stop-gap measure for NGC with Medals/Exonumia which were too large to fit into the then available slabs, the two that I have being 57mm and 76mm.
What NGC did was grade and photograph items submitted and then produce a card which resembles what a PCGS TrueView looks like. The obv/rev images were centered a little high with the NGC logo in the top-middle and an actual insert with all the pertinent information at the bottom-middle. On the reverse of the card is another separate card with the NGC guarantee/address and the two are joined by a silver seal similar to what's on the back of earlier NGC slabs. The entire thing is then laminated in plastic like a drivers license. Submitted items were returned in flips. I have since placed mine in custom holders but both NGC and PCGS now have capsules that will accommodate almost anything.
They are searchable in the NGC database, here is a link( https://ngccoin.com/certlookup/2137661-001/65/ ) to one.
My apologies if these have been discussed before but I have never seen them mentioned or listed anywhere. I don't currently have a picture, perhaps if someone else has images they can post them.
