What's the highest graded old small white Anacs slab that you have seen or own?

U1chicagoU1chicago Posts: 5,597 ✭✭✭✭✭

I have been on a mission to pick up some old small white Anacs slabbed coins and was wondering what is the highest grade you have seen on one of these (particularly for Morgans)?

I saw an auction result from several years back of an MS 67 Morgan but currently my highest grade is a 66 (photo courtesy of GC).

    Lots of 67's and had a few 68's.

    @Oakstar the 68's were crossed for my registry set. Many 67's still hanging around and sold some about 60 or so 67 soap bars to members here in the last year or so. Also cracked and sent a couple for upgrade and got them to 67+.

    I believe you. Just kidding with you. I have a feeling if I had yours, I would burn mine! 🤣 😂 👍🏻

    @U1chicago- You want the lowest grade in a soap bar? I have one of those also. 🤣 😂

    So what year did they quit using this slab (this one I was surprised).

    Around early 2006 was when the last of this type was made.

    That's a nice 1882-S Morgan, @coinbuff. I like the small ANACS holders as well.

    My highest graded small ANACS-holdered coin is an MS64 1885-CC toned silver dollar labeled "GSA." I assume it's cracked out from a GSA holder. It was bought on a whim along with some other TPG MS and PR coins purchased after discovering EBay and wanting to spend some money on some nice coins. Toning had become big during my break from collecting, so I looked to buy a few toners.

    It's fun to think back on that shopping spree.

    I have a bunch of soap bars that Im thinking of sending off to GC along with some NGC older holders one is a MS68 graded. They have been packed in a box for months. I just cant seem to get it sent off.

    Thanks, I would have never thought that late. I was wondering if the one shown was actually close to the end.

    Here is a link to a thread here on the forums, in that first post member @86Saab links to his google doc that outlines all the ANACS certs and slabs by generation.

    Im a fan of toning, but that quarter is too much funkiness for me. I would have to give it a quick dip.

    with gumby. Some like it, some don't. I'm just wondering if that 57 went south inside that slab over the years.

    I don't think it did-at least not recently. Below is a link to when it sold on Heritage in 2004 and you could see it was already fully toned (I owned it in 2019).

    I thought it was nice but nowhere near the top toned quarters (and obviously not something that would appeal to all). I would definitely not recommend dipping it though.

    My takeaway is Heritage certainly upped its photography game since 2004.

    Thanks @U1chicago. I wish there was a record or an indication on the slabs of when the coins were holdered. I wonder what the barcode says or indicates.

    Unfortunately the best we can do with most slabs is get an approximate date range (with Anacs, you can use the link from coinbuf above).

    Yes, that gets us close.

    As I recall, I made an MS67 once on a World coin (German, I think), which I had submitted to ANACS back in the old small holder era, circa 2003-ish.

    There is/used to be a member here that is/was trying to collect one of each US type coin in the ANACS white holders. He had a link to what they called their "ANACS KILL PAGE" where it tracked what slabs they had and needed....anyone know who I am talking about?

    I love those old alpha numeric ANACS holders. I don’t have any of them unfortunately. At least I don’t think do. I’ll have to check….gives me a good reason to break out the collection.

    Highest graded? I would have to look. I recall having at afew Jefferson wartime nickels that made it to 67 and a Mercury Dime
