they packaged them in the hard cases which looks close to the GSA cases but have the red label instead of black and either say "A Silver Dollar from the Redfield Collection," or "US Silver Dollar, Paramount International Coin Corp."
The coins in the holders that do not say Redfield are NOT from the Redfield hoard. Paramount did such a good marketing job with the Redfields that they were actually bringing more on the market than the same coins that were not from the hoard. So Paramount started putting their own stock dollars in holders that LOOKED like the Redfield holders and they were able to sell them for more as well. The trick still works today and you will still find Paramount coins being sold on eBay as Redfield dollars.
For more commentary on the Redfield's and their varieties see my comments in this thread. http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...PIC_ID=58443
