    So $2k for the holder and 80-200$ for the coin?

    If people will pay that, why not?

    This summer I went to a local coin show and just happened to walk by a dealer putting a 1939-S WLH graded MS65 in an NGC 2.1 holder out in his case. I asked what he wanted for it, expecting it to be moon money, and he grabbed a greysheet and said he couldn't do any better as it was a nice PQ coin he just got in. I happily agreed and paid him his full asking price. Right place and right time. I went right over to board member @DRUNNER, an old holder aficionado, who happened to be set up at the show, and excitedly shared my new purchase. Sheepishly I wouldn't be shocked if it got a gold bean.

    Nice score, @Southcounty. It is on the census?

    I don't believe it is. I think I checked to see if there were any other 1939-S WLHs in MS65 and as I recall there might have been one other but with a different cert number.

    A green bean is probably the minimum expectation for old holders. Gold beans might move the needle but I doubt a green bean would.

    There is a 1937 Buffalo head with gold CAC on reddit if anyone is interested.

    I am frequently surprised at the premiums for these older holders. I think I may have one or two, not sure.... probably picked up twenty years ago. I just collect coins and a lot of coins come in slabs.... to me, it is just protective packaging. Cheers, RickO

    Nah, they're a known wholesale market dealer that also does public facing work. They've been jumping on these and sitting on them for a while, guess they're finally moving them.

    Dempsey and Baxter is a well known and well regarded wholesaler in Erie, they regularly do all the shows within a wide radius of where they're located. Forum member @PTVETTER certainly knows who they are. While "Pop's collection" may have been the source of these there's really no reason to frame it with a negative connotation. As @DelawareDoons stated above, they probably accumulated them or made a recent purchase and are just selling the group/

    For those of you who take everything negatively, "Pop's collection" is not negative. There are a lot of older collectors who have died or will in the next few years, and the children/grandchildren have zero interest in the collection. It's simply a fact of life, of changing generations, of changing tastes and interests.

    As custodians of historical artifacts, would you rather they get dumped in the CoinStar, sold at the flea market, or bought & sold by a coin dealer who knows & understands the value of these items? At prices that represent the actual value of things and put more money in the pockets of the sellers so they can buy things that match their taste?

    Well, they do grade GSA and Redfield coins/holders so, why not? Seriously, it would not be that surprising if someone did.

    I am finding it to be hugely satisfying for us coin collecting minnows to be able to acquire coins/plastic that are rarer/scarcer and harder to find than major keys. Why disparage our enthusiasm? Now on to find a nice NGC 2.1 Mercury in this strange New World.
