Fantastic work!! It would be nice to see close up photos so we can understand exactly how it was put together.

@52Raymo perhaps it wasn't clear but I have only seen images of the coin from the two auctions. Regardless of how expertly the two halves were put together neither side matches the known die pairs nor even the reverse hub type, so PCGS really blew it. It would be interesting to see how it was done though.

I wonder if the current owner even knows about all the discussion about their coin? It was purchased through Heritage 5 years ago, do you know if they ever contacted the buyer?

@Zurie I don't know if Heritage ever contacted the buyer. Jack and I both contacted them about it a while ago. Jack has a direct contact there I think. Jack also contacted Stack's but they said it was too long ago and they didn't have any info. Heritage still has it listed as "make offer to owner" but they probably aren't aware yet that the cert has been pulled. I can imagine that there's little incentive for PCGS or HA to put a lot of effort into tracking down the owner, as it would cost them money.

Unfortunately it's in the slab style with the coin sealed in all the way around the rim, so I don't think you can see the edge through those. If the owner cracked it out to investigate, that would invalidate their guarantee, right? Of course the auction images prove that it was in their slab.
