Show off your favorite sample slab

Greetings all

I was given this idea by one of our very own members.

I must say I think this could be a lot of fun.

All you have to do is post a picture of your favorite sample slab.

Lets see how long we can keep this thread going.

So I will start with one of my favorite samples, a 1911 V Nicole.

What I like about this sample is that it is a circulated coin,

and there are several dates for you to collect.

Nice thread Alan. I must go now and find a sample slab to post.

 

Here's an NGC Sample with a Statehood Quarter. Quite common. In fact there's a fellow at the local coin club who's working on a collection of NGC Samples trying to get each State quarter. He's got a bunch.

<font size=2>Here is one that I owned at one time--One of my favorites!<br>

1. Obverse---Type III-2<br>

2. Reverse---Type C-3<br>

3. Clashed Dies---Obv and Rev and plain as day with the Naked Eye<br>

4. Beautiful Gold patina around the entire edge of the coin on both<br>

sides with a hint of copper color creeping in at the top of the Obverse!<br>

5. Last but not least is that this coin has a doubled date (re-punched date)<br>

The “8”s are strong using a good glass (9 or 10 power) you can also pick up the doubling on the 1__7.<br>

The second eight has a die chip on the left side between the loops.<br>

I’m pretty sure that this is not the result of a doubled die or machine doubling<br>

as the adjoining stars are sharp with no doubling present.<br>

I could not attribute it in either the Top 100 Vam book or the big Vam Book<p>

Nice coin Roger. I'd be a sad puppy if I had sold such a beauty.

Must have been a moment of numismatic weakness!

Is it my computer settings or these posts, but they all seem very large font-ed...

 

 

It's something in Roger's post. I haven't been able to figure out how to turn it off yet. Got the centering thing fixed but not the bold.

Roger have you looked at VamWorld ?

 

 

Okay, same thing happened on font size. I did not change font but it turned up larger then normal.

Sorry Guys, I'll tone things down a bit on the font size etc--Since I am new to the forum it<br>

will take me a few turns to learn the customs of the board.<br><p>OK, I edited my post and it seems

to have taken it down a notch or two. <br> Sorry for the trouble--I forget that I am using a wide screen<br>

monitor and get carried away.

Roger your post was fine as it was but somehow it left the center, bold, and large size in place as it ended. I'm not up on html these days and so I couldn't figure the correct ending tags to turn all this back to normal.

Art not sure if you caught mine. When I added a reply (Just the "add reply" down on the bottom not directly to Roger's post) after it posted it looked like a larger font also. Even though I had not changed the font size. When I came back later it appeared normal?

I've just gotten a nice new ANACS sample slab. First of this type for me. I have a few of the old ANACS slabs but no samples that I recall. I'll photograph and post it soon.

The 72D has a wonderful even gold tone to it. Very attractive coin.
