You want rare plastic, top this

$1000 coin, $299,000 worth of plastic. I think it would be tough to top this one.

    Did it actually sell for $300,000?

    I once had a Morgan dollar I forgot the date but it was a (p) that was worth 40 dollars. inside a gsa holder, it sold for 5000 dollars.

    Isn't that the one and only 93-CC in a GSA holder?

    Yes it is sir

    And if the holder gets cracked the coin is worth how much?

    Can these GSA slabs be opened? Is it possible to remove a coin and substitute a different coin?

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    They are examined very closely by the grading company. I learned to never say never, but I would think you would see splintering along the seams.

    There was a thread here about a PCGS slab that got out without being sealed. I can't believe the government workers at the GSA couldn't also miss sealing a few of these slabs.

    I saw one that fell apart. You couldn't tell it had ever been together. I assume it would be very easy to seal it so it wouldn't show. A dealer paid $500 for the two halves. I don't know what he put in it.

    $500 is a lot to pay for an unsealed GSA slab. Obviously, he had plans for it. Could he have put an 1893-CC in it? ;)

  • Ike1964Ike1964 Posts: 212 ✭✭✭

    Does the card exist with the 1893 date?

  • TONEDDOLLARSTONEDDOLLARS Posts: 2,928 ✭✭✭✭

    No it does not

    That is amazing... Such a price mainly for a holder/coin combination. Glad I collect coins, not holders. ;) Cheers, RickO

    anyone willing to share where it sold?

    oh don't worry, we KNOW what you've done. you'll always be nuts to us..... :D

    although, if you would have sold a lot of your plastic this past 18 months or so, your previous years of crazy would have netted some serious $$$$$$ if you would have sold. sometimes it TAKES nuts.

    I was just going to ask about that coin. Back when it was first being shown at shows, the plastic was "worth" well north of the $300K cited above.

    Yes it was. Very, very North

  • lilolmelilolme Posts: 2,320 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The 1889 CC was listed for sale by Sarasota at $1,000,000. Sometime later it was gone and I asked and was told that it sold for an offer below the asking.

    I had heard years ago that the 1892 CC was cracked out. But this is Not confirmed. If true it was Not done any time recently as the story was from years ago also.

  • LakesammmanLakesammman Posts: 17,189 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'll give you less than $300k for it - what's the story behind that one?? Trial of grading coins like eggs??

    Stunning!!

  • NumisOxideNumisOxide Posts: 10,940 ✭✭✭✭✭

    You could buy some amazing coins with 300k. That's crazy but then again I just bought a half dollar for $408. ;)

  • PhilLynottPhilLynott Posts: 867 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Interestingly enough this is one of the only times I get paying for the plastic. If the above is right and this guy has the only 89-CC in GSA as well that is an insane accomplishment to put together the only possible full set of these.

    I definitely would share in the holder concerns of @PerryHall a bit though but guessing NGC didn't take puttng a grade on this lightly.

    No,NGC accidentally sent this coin out without providing the final label.

    "A" was a preliminary grade for the shipwreck recovery.

    I've been told I tolerate fools poorly...that may explain things if I have a problem with you. Current ebay items - Nothing at the moment

  • coinkatcoinkat Posts: 22,424 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I saw this 93-cc at the Baltimore Show probably 5-8 years ago. I actually looked at the coin and thought it was unusual... unable to recall the name of the dealer that had it or the asking price.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.
