Does anyone know when these type of slabs with a signature were made?

They look similar to gen 4.0 slabs with no barcode and a plain light background but I was wondering if they were newer. Thanks for any information.

    He died in 2009, so it has to be before that. I would guess it was in 2001.

    Harder to identify, because it is not a standard label.

    Any images of the back of the slab?
    How many digits in the cert number?
    (PCGS Museum reference changes from 7 to 8 digits at GEN 4.1)

    Based on coin date (2001) and reported death date (2009), it has to be between PCGS Museum GEN 4.0 and GEN 4.4.

  • Serial number is 71105632 on the back next to a barcode. Above that is a PCGS logo and hologram.

  • There are a bunch of different types of these slabs with a signature for what it's worth. Here's the back.

    I do have some other regular 4.0 slabs that have a 8 digit serial number but most are 7 digit.

    Based on the hologram (PNG logo), it appears to be either Museum GEN 4.0 or GEN 4.1.

    Bar code on back suggests Museum GEN 4.0. However, I am NOT an expert on signature labels, and their associated variations (e.g., potentially relocating the cert # and bar code to 'make room' for a signature on the front of the label).

    Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will 'chime in' with a definitive answer.

  • Here's a 2003 one off eBay so maybe gen 4.1...
