    Here is another thread on the topic with some questions but many probably easily missed it.

    a link from the page above. also shows a caveat.

    Designed specifically for small, fragile and oddly shaped coins, it is the best way to preserve and display coins that previously could not benefit from the protection of NGC encapsulation.

    UV inks, microprinting, a high-security hologram and other security features prevent tampering and counterfeiting.

    I would have to see it in person. I like that it has no prongs, so they don't show up in photographs. I wonder how well it holds the coin though. And how the coin looks through the polymer.

    If you drop the slab on its edge, will the coin slide off-center?

    And if so, does will the coin have "imprinted" onto the polymer so that once moved it become hard to examine the coin?

    I have one. I bought a pre- William the Conqueror penny in a recent Heritage auction, and the coin was in one of those holders. The pictures threw me off at first because I looked at it thought, "Those coins were not that big." They aren't. The picture was taken over dark background with made it look like a coin within a coin.

    How do you like it? Is there any movement or is it held in very tight?

    I worry that the highest relief part on either side is receiving constant pressure. This will either damage the coin or it will start crazing the plastic, or both.

    I think that it's better than the NGC prong holders. I have not moved the coin around very much, so I don't know if it's super stable. If this catches on, you will be able to see more neat stuff, like lettered edges.
