I was browsing through thte latest edition of Coin World and saw the " PCGS Regency" holder. First that I have seen/heard of such a holder.

"A very attractive, totally original coin gray piece that just happens to be housed in one of the rare, old, oversized and highly collectible green PCGS Regency slabs."

Wait - the slab itself is collectible?

Interesting, I have only seen them with Israeli coins from the Danny Kaye Collection. For those that collect slabs, that is one of the rarest from PCGS.

Rare and collectible, people pay more for the slab than the coin.

Pretty snazzy when complete, green draw string bag, storage case and a piece of wood (pardon my ignorance);

these older PCGS slabs are collectible (Regency and Doiley holders) no matter what coins are in the holders. Its the few instances where people buy the holders and don't really worry about the grading being correct of the coins inside. The Regency and the doiley holders will fetch a premium over their counterparts because of the holder. The Regency seems to be a little more rare than the doiley's and their realized price usually reflects this

It is crazy what some people will pay for only the slab.

The Regency slabs are much scarcer than the Doiley slabs. A Regency slab probably adds about $800 or so to the value of the coin. A Doiley maybe $25 to $50. The Regency slab was in production for three years but relatively few were ever produced. The Regency slab added between $25 and $50 to the cost of slabbing the coin and unless there was something really special about the coin it was rarely considered worth the extra expense. By far the most commonly encountered pieces in Regency slabs are the Israeli commemoratives from the Danny Kaye collection. I believe there were some 325 pieces put in these holders. The coins themselves are common. When I got my first one back before silver went way up the coin by itself cataloged $15. Even today they are not much more than silver value. But over the past few years I know of sales of about half a dozen of the Danny Kaye Regency's in the $800 to $1000 range. And I don't think the premium is from the Danny Kaye pedigree.

Same thing can be said for most any collectible. Why would you pay so much more for an SVDB than for a VDB? They look almost identical, just one of them has an S on it? You do because it IS different and it is much rarer. People who pay a large premium for a certain slab do so for the exact same reason. It IS different and it is much rarer. How about some of these First Strike and Early Release ASE's? It is the EXACT same coin as one that isn't in a FS or ER holder, and they may have been struck MONTHS before the release date. Yet COIN COLLECTORS strive for them and scramble to try and get their own coins graced with these meaningless designations. Why? I don't think it is the slab collectors who care about these things.

You are absolutely right Conder101, I was actually going to edit my post and add something about how much we pay for coins, and somebody who collects antique firearms (for example) would think we are absolutely nuts, for paying thousands of dollars for a small piece of metal (Or even millions of dollars in some cases).

Conder101 is well known by many on the PCGS and NGC forums for his info on slabs. Yes the NGC black slabs are worth even more!

I just looked up a picture of the NGC black slab, I actually like that look a lot and certainly more than the white look. The coins stand out much better against the black. They should make the switch
