JAMES,
My second question would be, there's a number of reports that the new ANACS holders are easy to crack open by twisting on them and that some people are putting a lower grade coin in the slab and reselling it at the higher graded value. Have you heard of this problem and if it is a problem, what has or is being done about it?
Thanks,
Terry

I would like to add to this question, too. Even if switching isn't a problem, the flimsy feel of the new holders is a little unsettling. Are there plans to improve the holder's rigidity?

I would like to know why the new ANACS holder is so flimsy. This thing won't last 10 years, much less 30 years or "permanent."

Terry,

I too have heard those reports, but I can tell you that I have not seen even one example of a switched coin in our ClearView holder, nor have I heard from even one person of a specific incidence of it happening. The reason why I don't think it could happen is because our ClearView holder is the most tamper-evident holder in the market. I'm not saying it can not be broken, but I am saying that if you try, it will clearly be evident.

In order to have the clarity of the holder that we have, we made the viewing walls thinner than other holders. It's great when looking at the coin, but it does make it easier to crack open. As long as the holder is tamper-evident I am OK.

I should mention that we have made subtle but important improvements to the holder in the past months so as to improve the strength and seal of the holder. As a result, I am hearing almost universally positive comments about the holder.

James
