I have this Indian Head cent 67/67 graded AU 50 which completes my collection. All of the others are in the folder. Should I break it out?

Crack it out only if your other IHC are in an album , NOT a folder . Also if the other coins are close in grade to your AU .

I agree. Album, yes. Folder, no. Also, consider the grades of what you have already. You might not want this one to stick out too much either way.

67/67 overdate? double die?

Which TPG?

Value? Cost to slab again when/if needed to sell?

Good advice from all. Unless your set is quite high-grade, I wouldn't crack it. How about some pics?

Thank you all for your advice. The grades vary and sorry it is an album. This is an $800 coin. Most others are not that valuable. I was planning on breaking it out anyways because I can improve the more common ones as time goes by. BTW, I just went to PCGS price guide for pricing and it mentions that complete set - with major varieties is worth about 3x more than the set - with date and mint mark. 67/67 is the only major variety I am familiar with. How do I look up what they are referring to?

I would be hesitant to break this one out. I have a $500 limit and the only reason it is that high is that I need two Seated dollars for my 7070. Otherwise, my limit is below $200).

In the end you have to be happy. Filling an album hole with the real coin is always my goal; therefore, a proxy/plug/etc. for a slabbed would not make me happy. If you cannot find this one cheaper, then crack away!

Unless you have a high risk tolerance, leave the coin in the holder as there is too much much down side in cracking.

Can we see a picture of the entire slab? If you do break it out, take pictures of it (Obv. and Rev.) before you do. Print out the picture, 3x5. After you break it out, save the barcode and scotch tape it to the picture. Put the picture in a clear sleeve in the back of your album.

Leave it in the slab. No upside other than being beside others in your collection (folder / album). Unique coin. Keep it unique. Nice coin! Will sell better in the future in the holder.

Tend to agree. OP's pic certainly sheds no light.

You're not the only one that faced this dilemma. I've got over 100 coins in slabs or special packages (mostly Canadian) that I really want to display with the rest of their 'family', but I've kept most of them the way I've bought them.

The only thing I do know is that if you're not sure right now, you can always change your mind down the road and crack them out; but if you change your mind in the future AFTER they are 'freed', it's not too easy to slab them back.
