Wow, I would have never thought of jbuck as someone that would do a 'vise-job' on one of his coins!

Not sure if you had any shards of plastic fly off, but I do when using the old hammer or heavy duty dyke cutters like I use, I'd place a towel over the coin as you crank the clamp, at least wear safety glasses!

A nice un-entombment piece jbuck!

I'm still a confirmed "slab lover".
I do love my PCGS Ike set, no doubt, but this particular Dansco album dates back over thirty years. I cannot quit now!

Hope you are gonna save the label though.
For now I will keep it in an envelope in one of my OGP storage boxes. Not sure if I want to tape it inside the Dansco or not.

Every bit of plastic was contained inside the paper towel wrapping. There was one chunk (I believe between cycles 4 and 5) that I removed before I re-wrapped.

Thank you all for the comments.

Nice break out. Even nicer coin! Congrats on filling that hole.

I've used a similar method to yours as well as clipping the edge method. Both worked just fine and didn't damage the coin.

I found that the rubber insert is quite protective of the coin!

DOH! I even looked at the photo of it wrapped too. But still a good point y'all don't want plastic shards in your eyes - ever! I've bled before when cracking slabs.

And paper towels are better becuase you can toss them. Never, ever use your spouse's good towels.

My preferred method is clamping the slab in a vise with the coin well below the top of the vice jaws and using the jaws as a top guide for a hand hacksaw. Do this for 3 sides and you can usually pull the coin out without too much effort and without a 4th cut. Just be careful not to drop it on the floor!

No more spouse, I traded her to keep my coin collection.

That was an option I considered, but I do not have a bench vise at home. I do have one at the office, but I work from home now. I was going in one day a week over the summer... so maybe if I had bought it sooner?

Good idea. A C clamp is a good way to free the coin. I've used my band saw.

I figured if SPP could open a PCGS slab with his bare hands, I could use some amplified pressure to do the same with NGC!

Looks good. Sweet outcome and kudos to being brave. I'm not sure if I'll try this or my trusty Dremel attachment which I usually use next time.

Awesome addition to your collection. Congrats. I also like the story-like quality of this thread as well as the how-to aspect of it.

Btw, last slab I broke out, I used my mitre saw box. Lots of fine plastic bits all over the place but it worked great. Your method seems to save a lot of wear and tear on tools.
