Fancy cert numbers?

lordmarcovanlordmarcovan Posts: 43,343 ✭✭✭✭✭

People collect fancy serial numbers on currency. Does anybody collect fancy cert numbers on PCGS slabs?

I just posted this coin in another thread but also just noticed its serial number is one digit away from being a palindrome (like a "radar" note), and it's got some "Lucky 7s",

Who's got any fun cert numbers? I'm sure somebody can do better than what I've got here.

    There are some PCGS sample slabs that have all 0s and others that are 12345678 but those are not as "natural" as getting a fancy number on a random slab.

    Many years ago, I bought an AU common date Liberty half eagle in a small ANACS slab. I bought it off eBay and I don't even remember the exact grade or date. I bought it because the serial number was 666666 which I thought was really cool. I bid high but wound up winning it at what an AU raw common date half eagle would have cost. The seller really hyped the six 6's serial number in his description but it didn't make any difference in the final price.

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

    I used to save dollar bills with repeated numerals for liars poker at the bar.... won some cash with those bills. Never looked for special slab numbers. Cheers, RickO

    How about a PCGS cert# with no repeating numbers? If I listed it on eBay, I would not mention that I thought the cert was interesting. But I do.
