    That's D-O-I-L-Y, with an "i", not "Dolly".

    Nice! They're pretty rare. At one time, I believe just about any coin in a Doily holder would be worth $150-200-ish, minimum, just for the plastic.

    This thread on Collectors Universe may interest you.

    Back in the early 2000s, I sold an 1854 PCGS MS65 RD large cent in a Doily holder. It was a consignment- I could not afford the coin for myself. I wish I could have. It sold for $2,500 or so at the time, as I recall. A year or two later, I saw the very same coin in a dealer's case at one of the FUN shows, and it was not the person to whom I had sold the coin on eBay, so it had changed hands. Small world. The price had gone up considerably, too. I wanna say it had gone up to $4K-something. Don't remember exactly. It was a nice coin. I wonder if it is still in the Doily holder today.

    There are 2 of them for sale on ebay now. Sorry for the misspelling but the sale said Dolly. Guess that person didn't know either. Never saw them before.

    Lordmarcovan, thanks for the correction (Doily) now I know what it is. Lesson learned.
