I sent this out to ANACS but before I sent it, I asked them, because the coin was considerably thick, if they could slab it. They assured me they could and in the end they did - as can be seen here





the coin is actually minted at a 90 degree angle, which I didn't notice until it returned from them






They slabbed and labled it with the weight, which I thought was interesting, but when they slabbed it, they used a center that is concave and is above the surface of the slab, so it won't stack like a normal ANACS slab.

I've seen examples of this coin, much more expensive than ours. This one came from the David Pew collection via John Zielinsk
