I sometimes think a lot of these folks believe that on the day PCGS was born every genuine coin out there worth over $150 magically grew a plastic case around itself.
Sounds about right.

You all understand that the TPGers usually don't rely on "in house authority" for coins such as this; the '"OK' comes from someone of Newman-wesque stature, or at least people who have the expertise, such as Alan and Anthony. I'll even add that the author of the authorative book on the Higley colonials hemmed and hawed about mine-even he couldn't figure it out. As someone who remembers the days before TPG, you really had to know your stuff: not just if a coin were Genuine, but also if it was played-with (OK, they still don't have that one down pat yet). The Grading Guarantee and Guarantee of a sight-unseen certified coin market was all Wall Street wanted to hear. That little chunk of plastic has revolutionized coin collecting as much as has the Internet-a vast transformtion. The little chunk of plastic around the OP's coin would be worth Millions as Genuine, and would set a record even if iy were deemed to be a cont=emporary imitation. That's what TPG plastic would do for that coin. Even the bored people who watch the national newscasts would sit up and take notice.Click-bait City. Heritage issues tonss of press releases every year... The virus has limited travel lately. Give it some time; no one is going to rush-to-judgement on this coin...

One of the things I despise about TPG Companies is that nowadays everyone expects you to slab your coins to prove that they are real. While they are good at certifying the coins authenticity, they cant be perfect, and just because a coin is in a slab doesn't mean its real. Ive seen plenty coins placed in holders from different coins.
Keep track of your collection:

It would be a shame if this coin ends up being an indeterminate "could be", but it wouldn't be surprising.
