  1. Glad was solved without blood
  2. I would actually return the coin after contacting both eBay and the seller given that you received a broken slab. But if you are to keep the coin possibly yes for 2 reasons. One, the radio silence, and 2, the sloppy packaging of an expensive and breakable product.

    Collection - scarcity vs eye appeal

    I have done it a few times. But only for very rare issues.

    What is your definition of Rare and ...

    For sure I use the rarity scale. However, a practical rule for me is... is the coin has not been available for purchase in over 5 years, likely is rare. Perhaps not technically (i.e. perhaps there are more than 10) but if I want a coin and comes out for auction once a decade is rare enough to caught my attention.

    A box to store both NGC and PCGS slabs?

    These are a great but really bulky. You need a lot of space for even a small collection.

    This beautiful 65+ just arrived today!
  14. @World Colonial yes, the 4R series are as rare as they come. I have seen very few in "good" shape. But find them charming and under appreciated.
