    Hello everyone, and Happy New Year!

    Earlier last year, during discussions in the ever popular Toning Premium Thread, I came up with the idea for a Details Discount Thread in which we guessed the discount from retail for details graded coins. As many of you probably saw, we had a decent run, but have been struggling a bit to keep the interest level up.

    The leader of the thread, @ddddd , recently proposed declaring @Beefer518 the overall winner and starting a new thread to discuss holder premiums. We all wholeheartedly agreed and the baton was passed to me as the person who first thought up the Details thread. So, along with congratulating @Beefer518 as the Details Discount champion, I am now starting the new year with the Holder Premium Thread. The rules are as follows:

    1. Just like the Toning Premium Thread, one coin is posted at a time by the winner of the previous round.

    2. Each coin should be in an older generation, vintage or unusual holder. This includes rattlers, doilies, OGH’s, and fatties along with other TPGs like Paramount, PCI or Hallmark. Non graded holders with special significance are also welcome. For example, classic commems in original packaging. Both US and World are welcome.

    3. Include a reference value for the coin in its assigned grade. PCGS Price Guide, Greysheet, etc.

    4. If you are able, provide some background info about the holder.

    5. Consider blacking out serial numbers and/or auction lot numbers if the pricing history is easily traceable, such as for PCGS. (However, we still need to rely on the honor system, so don’t guess if you have seen the sale price...)

    6. Try to avoid posting coins that have dramatic toning patterns or are drastically over or under graded. Examples would include a monster toned Morgan (better to post on the Toning Premium Thread) or a marked up AU coin in a basement slab graded MS70. We want to focus to stay on the holder.

    7. The closest guess to the actual sales price wins. Although this is called the Holder Premium Thread, keep in mind that some holders may carry a discount.

    So without further ado, I will post the first coin which is a PCGS MS62 Liberty Nickel in an OGH. I recently sold it from my collection after purchasing it in 1996, at which time all PCGS holders were OGH’s :). I wasn’t able to edit out the slab number so please don’t peek at the auction records... PCGS Price Guide for a 62 is $105.

    ...while the OGH is popular and someone might want this for an OGH type set, these holders aren't particularly rare....thus I think the premium was a small one over guide

    My favorite generation holder there a few of my favorite coins live in one.

    I really like this one, normally I'm not a fan of Liberty Nickels but this one has a nice patina. Will say $155

    Ok, I had to think of something to put up, and came up with this one.

    1788 Massachusetts - Period after Mass - Graded "GOOD" by none other than Walter Breen

    PCGS puts this at $210 (it's the only price guide I can find)

    What did I pay?
