Post'em, if you gott'em. Since I'm here, I'll start. I love these small holders. Forget the coin, post the slab. 😂 😉

    Wow!! Some stunning examples gents! 👍🏻 Nice to see how many others are in this small ANACS holder club. Had no idea this thread would take off the way it did.

    Here’s one that used to be in an old soapbox—it was the first certified coin I ever bought, when I graduated from throwing random Kennedy halves and SBAs in an old jewelry box.

    It’s nice to have the TrueView and have it part of my Registry type set, but I kind of regret crossing it even though it went at grade (62). I have to think it’ll CAC with the antique toning—I’ll try this year.


    What was the grade before it left the old soapbox?

    No doubt, you guys could blowup this thread with these slabs. So is it soapbar or soapbox?..... or both?

    Here's another one. I kinda liked the toning on this one.

    A couple questions:

    Who were the graders when they were using those holders? Let me guess a few from their old ads in Coin World, Mike Fahey, Randy Campbell, Tim Hargis.
    Also: why did they discontinue that nice minimalist holder?

    No idea who any graders were.
    No clue why they changed the holders. I do know there are 6 different soapbar style holders with the first and the 3rd one being the toughest to find. Especially the 3rd style..

    I'm thinking it's good for all of us that they discontinued these soapbars. 👍🏻 😉

    Good financially if you owned them already.

    @TennesseeDave RE is one of the crossover combos (EX is the other) that were in use by ANA and continued under Amos. That dates your slab to the 2nd half of 1990.
