Cool old Accugrade picture slab. Anyone know how old?

    I wonder if there is a place to look it on the internet?

    Mid to late 1980s if I recall correctly.
    There are a few people who follow these more closely and hopefully they will chime in.

    That is nice.
    The added bonus is you don't see gold in these holders often.

    I don't recall ever seeing that particular version of the holder before, let alone with a gold coin in it. That is something a serious slab collector would probably love to have. The Connecticut location will should allow it to be dated quite closely.

    All glory is fleeting.

    That is the first Accugrade holder I have seen with a gold coin.... Slab collectors would like that one. Cheers, RickO

    I have not seen one like that either and the gold is a bonus. Thanks for posting it!

    Not really, the 2-line Connecticut location labels changed to a 3-line version with their PO Box on it. That type of photo is towards the end of the 2-line series. I don't have dating much beyond that. In the world of photoslabs, both are "relatively" common.

    There are several known gold coins, but yes those are few and far between... I've seen a couple that were just two highly-priced for me (overpriced Saints - sold as if the Accugrade grade would upgrade like a similar PCGS era grade).

    In the PC, I find two

    • 1853 Liberty Head (Gold, Type 1) $1 in the much rarer "Florida" label.
    • 1917 McKinley/Louisiana Purchase Commemorative $1
