PCGS no hologram

#1 Unread post by champstar »

There is much debate over whether a PCGS holder can/cannot be valid if it does not have a hologram. The PCGS museum of holders only seems to show the main/basic holders.

I have a 2008 1/10oz gold Buffalo Moy signed that seems to have a slightly different holder. The color of the plastic is slightly darker/bluer. It fits/snaps with other PCGS holders fine, but it has a slightly different top/obverse design -- specifically the 4 corners. It has a special label -- not the standard light blue one. There is no hologram front/back.

The PCGS verification# of 29659206 pulls up the correct coin/year, but has no images on file.

Many of the early holders that were made for special occasions didn't have the hologram as well as the holders for many NIFC coins like the Kennedy halves. There's no logic to it. You can have two of the same year and mint coin and they can have different holders depending on when they were graded.

Welcome C, I would call PCGS and see what they say about it, IF it is some kind of rare holder, obviously you keep it, if it has no added value, send it to be reholdered. do not have it regraded, just reholdered, it costs a few bucks, but I think you would be ahead in the long run
