One can only hope.

Just kidding. That is one slab I would never crack. I would never own it, but would never crack if it ever came into my possession.

Since it was at auction, at least 2 people thought the price was justified. (or one person was messing with with the other as s/he drove the price up)

I remember a lot of top-grade US coins were fetching staggering prices a few years back.
I'm more blown away by what the sale price on that one coin could buy in terms of a whole collection.

OK so now picture this. The buyer does want to put it in something to really keep it perfect since many suspect those slabs are just not air tight. So he puts the slab in a vise, turns the handle to loosen the edges, starts cutting with a Dremel on the edges.
THEN the entire slab burst open, the coin goes flying, he attempts to grab it in the air, misses, it hits the floor, bounces and rolls under the work bench. He bends down to find it, bumps into a hammer on the bench that also falls on top of the coin. That hammer had paint on it and now he lefts the hammer and the coin is not there. It's on the hammer head. Mad he throws the hammer outside and it hits a fence, the coin falls into the dirt with the paint on it.
He never finds it again.
30 years later his house is sold, some people with kids move in, they find that coin, put it on a RR track and .........well you know how this ends.

Made me cringe just reading the "coin goes flying" part. I really lost it when I got to the end.

People have too much money, IMHO just a waste of money but if you have millions why not right

The buyer is not a collector by true definition. He/She is a "rare coin investor"..... now if you think in that context then the price consideration would be different..... the main consideration become "rate of return" or "appreciation value".
