Did anybody see the NGC white label 1908 Liberty $5 gold that just closed for $1,850 on the Bay
Good deal for the slab or not?

    I would think the holder is currently worth $1,000-$1,200 and then the value of the coin would have to be factored in, as well. However, I could be off.

    I did not see it but that sounds like it went very cheap.

    It’s an NGC 2.0. Slightly less desirable than a 2.1. No CAC sticker so the selling price is an even split between the value of the coin and the value of the holder.

    Fair price considering all of the above.

    The more valuable the underlying coin, the lower the holder's premium.

    It might be $1,500 for a $100 nickel, but for a $700 coin, you aren't going to sell it at $2,200 - the holder collectors (like me) are mostly tightwads.
