Generation Question

I'm selling this coin, so it's really my last chance to ask, but what generation is this holder? I've never seen that color of insert before or since.

    Offhand, I am not certain which generation this is in part because of the label color- looks like a light green and not white- but does not appear faded. My gut says it was likely graded in the 1994-1997 time frame- if not earlier.

    Swiss coinage from this period has a decent survival rate in terms of quality-

    Just for fun, I pulled my PCGS pop report from July 1994- Swiss is included- the pop at that time for the 1934 B 1/2 Fr was 58 in 67 and 23 in 68 and 1 at 69. My guess is your coin was graded prior to July of 1994

    Funny how a better bid for paper labels has created a whole collectiing genre. :D

    It’s faded, there are a couple tags that were prone to fading, this is one of them. The light green rattlers did too, easily, I think it’s due to a semi defective blue used in the dying process. I’ve had some of each that were very yellow, so much so that I would have sworn they were made that way. I believe it is because of exposure to UV rather than heat. If they spent a fair amount of time seeing the sun in a display case or something they’d fade. Maybe not even direct Sun, but ambient UV light.

    I think it would be interesting to do an experiment.
