Grade doesn't matter with a coin like this it will just bring more money PC slabbed no matter the grade if I want to sell it. Was hoping for FBL though but I knew it was slightly lacking.
I can see people running to copy this idea now
Congrats @Cascade! I'm pretty sure I remember when you bought this coin and the thread it was in....Wow, it looks great in real TPG plastic!
Or sitting on a certain picture in certain magazines.. haha
Good luck with that. It takes many, many years sitting in a Whitman folder and the exact right surfaces of a coin. There is a reason these are rare.
I like it !
Why I was even tempted to ............ nahhhhhhh, that aint ever gonna happen
I'll take it! Did you hear that guys!! I got a like from Doug!!!... and it was me no less, eat your collective hearts out
Now, if only I can get a like on a semi-political right-leaning post from @desertgem my CT goals will be complete
Wait... how does something like that occur?
Whitman folder albums have a paper info sheet attached that lays against one page of coins when closed. If the coin has the right surface that is highly suseptable to toning and the book is kept closed for a long time with pressure on it like if it's at the bottom of a stack of albums then this can happen. Typically it's only a strong letter or maybe a weak word or partial word but for almost the entire surface of the coin to imprint all the lettering and words so crisply the stars really have to align.
Cool. That's typically what you get when transfer does happen but even those bring nice premiums.
