    With no business name present, the only clue is, who is "G.A."?

    I think I have one of those from 20 years ago or so. I thought mine had a company name on it though. I'll search.

    Cool!
    Almost similar to the old school PCI
    holders?

    Not even close.

    There are a couple of companies that used this kind of large plastic sleeve. Some have names, some don't.

    Clue to the age is the "now being endorsed" for the ANA grading standards. What year was the 1st edition?

    I bet that plastic sleeve is made out of PVC. Suggest that you keep it in a cool climate-controlled area of your house.

    I haven't seen that specific example, but it is very similar to the Federal Certification Service holder and to a lesser degree the Independent Numismatic Laboratory holder. There are examples posted in the Rare Plastic for the Weekend thread.

    I have on Instagram and a FB commem page.

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 9,254 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Sorry, mine was different company in same type holder, unless it is the same company. Hmmmm the label used to list the coin year is exactly the same type and the label used to date the grading and list the Grader and Grade is exactly the same. I would be willing to think these are the same companies. What do you feel?

    Very nice. What did it grade in the old holder?

  • rickoricko Posts: 98,724 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is a new one to me... When I went to shows in the PNW, strange 'slabs' or 'containers' would show up occasionally. Do not recall seeing that one. Perhaps @CaptHenway recalls this group. Cheers, RickO

    Don't know that one. Definitely not ANACS.

    It's funny how something like liking a holder can be so subjective.
    I really like some early proto-slabs. Some even have features I wish the newer holders had.
    But some proto-slabs don't do much for me. I'm not a huge fan of this one. It's just a little too awkward--too long and narrow, too much empty space. Cut and paste label, different and incongruous materials.
    Interesting. But not for me.

    If they are going to the trouble of imaging the coin and doing a back and front grade they are going to be responsible and accurate.

    never seen one until now, cool looking slab

    I suppose omitting all contact info is an easy way to get out of honoring a guarantee.

    GA - Gary Adkins?
    DH - Well, David Hall?
    The first names that came to mind with those initials. ;)

  • Coin FinderCoin Finder Posts: 6,953 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The coin is about a 61 + shot 62 so a bit over graded in my book.

  • Coin FinderCoin Finder Posts: 6,953 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I was 1/2 point off…a 64 is right out!


  • joeykoinsjoeykoins Posts: 14,848 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looks quite similar to what I found a few weeks ago?

    "Jesus died for you and for me, Thank you,Jesus"!!!

    Yeah, closest thing I have in size and shape is an INL holder:

    @thebigeng - do you own it or is it listed for sale somewhere? Wouldn't mind adding to my collection.

    @pointfivezero I removed the coin from the holder and had it graded, mostly for educational purposes. I still have the holder and or course the coin. I own it and would sell both. Thanks
