    Well.... Let’s just say that Randy loves and appreciates a gift. But I won’t be buying any.

    I've always wondered about getting these graded and slabbed. Seeing as most are going to grade in the upper 60's, and seeing that they are MOSTLY sold as bullion, what is the 'value added' to these at or above MD68?

    Just curious.

    Outside of the lower mintage dates, the added value of having one graded is not worth it... yet.

    There isn't any added value to folks like me. When I purchase ASE's I will pay spot with a small premium if I have to. To me slabbing an ASE is like outfitting a Ford Pinto with a high dollar custom paint job. Bullion is bullion to me regardless of how "shiny" it may be..... However, this one was a gift from my mother which makes it very special to me.

    I think the day will come where ASE's will become as desired by collectors as they are to investors. When that happens, graded ASEs will have premiums worthy of the cost to grade. Why? Cause set builders will want the assurance that the surfaces of the ASEs are of high and consistent grade across the entire set.

    I believe you are right, of course it will be many years from now that they may be as popular as Morgan's are today.
