'Authentic' PCGS "Slab Logo" Images

#1 Unread post by PALH1 » Fri Jul 25, 2014 2:18 am

i was thinking about the 'fake-o' imposter slabs being found, & remember.....
:eureka:
i did not 'save' the image, but i was sent a pic of a 'slab logo', missing the "registered trademark" :s

here are the images of a real authentic slab logo.... hugeeyes

Ah, I thought you was comparing logo with no logo.

just so there is no 'slab-fusion'....
it was the "registered trademark", ® symbol, that was missing

I thought it was looking like a civil war soldiers profile, (with a cap) looking left, or the outline of a
state (State of confusion?) lol:

Currency looks dead on but the coin slab logo has more of a "Bob Hope "slope to the nose and skinnier neck.
Could it be an earlier Liberty profile or a "Queen " profile?

I found this quote in an online article by one of the founders of PCGS (David Hall)- Posted on Oct. 30, 2010 on PCGS Blog

"Now we have PCGS CoinFacts, the online version of the book JD, Gordy, Bruce and I wanted to write before we started PCGS. I have three artifacts that trace the development of the PCGS CoinFacts push for information. There’s the 1981 table of contents for our ultimate coin encyclopedia and the condition census index cards. And there’s also something interesting I saved from 1999. That year I had our internet team design the page format for the online version of the ultimate encyclopedia (I used an 1889-CC dollar as the model coin.)"

http://www.pcgsblog.com/david-hall/news ... the-future

I wonder if profile of Liberty on the 1889-cc was the inspiration for the interior of the "G" on the PCGS even though it more closely resembles the Liberty $5 Gold profile (if she had a "Bob Hope slope" to the bridge of her nose. widegrin )
