Identify which generation PCGS early holder this 1972 Doubled Die Lincoln cent is in

jfriedm56jfriedm56 Posts: 845 ✭✭✭✭✭

So I realized this is an earlier gen. holder, and after seeing numerous discussions on gen. 1, doily, etc. holders being purchased, was wondering if this holder has potential worth more than just the coin itself. I haven’t seen many others in this generation holder possibly due to crack outs? Let’s see others that may be out there.

    OGH are desirable IMO. As are the solid gaskets. The coin in the OP is nice as well.

    It's 2.0 in the Condor101 scheme of things. Came just after the rattler.

    Look like a GEN 2.1, per the 'PCGS Museum of Coin Holders'.

    Too bad about the crack halfway down on our right. Collectors are getting fussy about the condition of the older and scarce holders like they are their coins.

    Thanks for your response. Don’t you think it’s gen. 2.1, right after the 2.0 Doily?

    I believe you are correct in that it is a 2.1 Generation holder as it looks to have the perforations that were removed in the 2.2 Generation holder.

    There are two commonly used references for holder generations - "Condor101" and the "PCGS Museum of Coin Holders". The numbers assigned by the different sources do not necessarily synch.

    The post from @Lakesammman specifically indicates that his 2.0 is from the "Condor101" scale.

    FWIW, I agree that the GEN 2.1 immediately follows the 'GEN 2.0/Doily' in the PCGS reference.

    To be a little more precise, it is a Gen 2.1A

    Thank you all for your responses. I suppose I never thought about that small crack as being a problem, as I’ve always just bought the coin, not the holder. Is there any premium to this gen. holder even with the small crack?

    First I have heard of the “A”. Is that for the absence of PCGS at the top of the label?

    Correct. I just bought one of the 2.1A holders so I found this link more helpful than others.

    PCGS does not differentiate between the non-PCGS logo with fine perforations label (Condor 2.0) and the PCGS logo with coarse perforations label (Condor 2.5) even though these appear to be two distinctly.different label generations.
