PCGS Slab graded by the Coalition Of Licensed Australian Slab Slabbers as SS68. This is one of the highest grades ever awarded a slab of this type and should command a substantial premium above book price for gem.

WHY BUY CLASSY SLABS?
Your slab is the greatest numismatic investment you can make for your investment fund* and as such should be accurately graded and protected from damage which will lower its resale value.
THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARD
CLASSY clabs are graded to the standards of Professional International Slab Slabbers Association, which are set out below.
SS70 (Slab State 70 or FDM (fleur de mold)). The slab is prefectly formed, no marks or scuffs can be seen on the case under 30x magnification.
SS65 (Slab State 65 or Gem Unc). The slab is well formed, only a few minor marks can be seen under magnification.
SS60 (Slab State 60 or Uncirculated). The slab can be poorly formed, quite a few marks and scuffing can be seen with the naked eye, but there are no significant abrasions (wear).
AU50 (About Uncirculated). The slab shows just a touch of wear, but the most important part of the slab (the label with the grade on it) is clearly visible.
EF40 (Extremely Fine). The slab shows more wear, but the most important part of the slab (the label with the grade on it) are fairly clearly visible.
VF20 (Very Fine). Many scratches and moderate scuffing on the case, but no actual cracks. A collection of slabs in this grade can be quite attractive.
F12 (Fine). Many scratches and quite heavy scuffing on the case but no more than one moderate crack will be present.
VG8 (Very Good). Very heavy scuffing on the case with many chips and cracks. The label inside intact and the coin present.
G4 (Good). The slab shows extensive damage, with the coin missing. The label will be mangled but must be present.
P1 (Poor). The slab is barely recognisable as a slab, just a few shards of plastic remain with both the label and the coin missing.
* Apart from reading the literature, experience gained collecting and learning how to grade.
See my other special April 1st auctions this week for more rare, ridiculous and unbelievable items but the odd outright scam.
Orders could be combined to save postage but I'd prefer not to so I can make some money out of the postage.
Delivery in Australia: I prefer to send orders by registered post ($A5 for individual coins and groups of coins that will fit into a padded bag to be sent registered, at cost for heavier items) but for smaller orders will send by normal mail for $2.00 (but any loss will be that of the purchaser).
Payment: All cheques must be in Australian Dollars. Items will not be shipped until I feel like it.
Return conditions: If you are unhappy with this item for any reason whatsoever, please return it and we will relist the item and keep your money.
Feel free to email me if you would like a more detailed scam.
We at Joe King Numismatics reserve the right to end this auction early if anyone takes it seriously and actually bids.
