    Winner will be selected from a slip of paper with their screen name selected by my wife.
    I can not afford to mail this outside the united states sorry. My goal is to see what exists
    in types of slabs. I only care about ones other than NGC; PCGS and ANACS. I also want to know which TPG issued branded slab cases. If you can post a photo that is great. If you can not and still want to win the prize simply send me a pm with your screen name. This is not the most recent edition but since they cost north of $65 I never buy them new. Contest runs from 1 April to 30 April. The winner will be announced 1 May and can then send me their mailing address via private message. Good Luck and thanks for the help.

    To be clear. This book is in used condition. It is not new old stock.

    To be clearer, my guess is we have to wait until tomorrow to send in pics, right? Thanks for the contest, great prize to boot! thumb.gif

    Great giveaway, that's very generous. Here's a slab I like a lot. ICG with a black leather-ette insert around the coin. IMG_0627.JPG

    Very nice gesture. I will defer as I have the complete 2016 set.

    Very generous contest and great prize. I keep checking them out of the library. If I win maybe I can stop accruing fines!

    My only non big 2 graded coins PCC aka basement graded coins.

    4 coins equals 4 entries right ;)

    Four BRANDS would equal four entries BUT you must show something new not listed here before and ANACS, PCGS, NGC are well known and not eligible. If those are all that folks have then they can enter with a pm to me. Thanks for another new one. I upgrade these to newer editions every time I can find them. If this one is popular I can probably do it again later this year. Keep in mind that I don't care who owns the coin you post just that it be different from what is posted so far. I predict that slabs and cases combined there should only be at most 50 people who enter via photo and an unknown number who enter via pm. good luck, harley.

    Here's a slab from SEGS, it says on the slab that the 1998 nickel is toned but that's extremely debatable. :smug: I looked at it very carefully and although I noticed an extremely light yellow hue on the obverse, it certainly doesn't qualify as a toned coin to me. They did call the grade right though, nice looking nickel!! ;) Thanks for the contest!! :D IMG_6540.JPG IMG_6544.JPG IMG_6547.JPG IMG_6550.JPG IMG_6551.JPG

    You can get some cool coins for short money in these holders. But viewing and taking pics through the 2 layers of plastic is not cool. IMG_0628.JPG IMG_0629.JPG

    black boxes can't be seen - please try again. The first one you posted several days ago worked fine.

    Are you sure? They look fine from here.

    this time they showed fine. No black boxes. Since only new listings count I want to make sure that all are visible to all entrants so that there are no hard feelings about rejected extra entries. You have the fifth and sixth entries. good luck.

    Here’s one a bit different for you out of my collection. Don’t know it would qualify as a slab. But certainly different.

    From back in 1985 that would be from the stone age of slabs.
    I like it and you are the seventh entry. good luck
