Early NGC Styrofoam Box

I believe these were used for a short time in the early days of NGC for gen's 1 & 2. They hold and fit 13 of the old "fatty" holders. These are rarely seen and should command a big premium. I've only seen two over the years and I bought them both. I no longer own.

Early Rattler w/NCI Photo Certificate

This very cool piece that I owned was graded by PCGS only to be sent to Heritage to receive a second opinion, perhaps? In the opinion of CAC they were both tough on the coin as this beauty was awarded the coveted gold sticker.
