    Wow, never heard of it till now and I don't see it as extravagant as other coins. Maybe just not my kind of interest?
    I mean, if you bought the coin and send it to NGC or PCGS, would they attribute it as with proof of the certificate? I don't know because it can be a different 1941-S, how would the TPGs know that it is what it says it is?

    That's cool. I used to work there, 1988-1992.

    I read about this years ago.

    A great piece of history.

    I knew about them and I would love to have one, but I can't afford them. They do show up on the market from time to time.
