Looks very nice, I'll bet the toning is super in hand and looks lustrous. I know too well what it's like to buy a nice coin that I already own, if it just grabs my attention. Part of the fun.

That Great Collections sticker won't hurt it I hope.  

IMO a few dupes are no big deal.  Each coin (or slab ;) ) can have its own character.

Rear NGC labels are often ripped off on this generation holder. If you damage it I don't think it will matter.

That couldn't be more untrue.  The gold foil is the coolest part of the slab and, since so many were damaged, the ones that remain are scarce and in demand.

Okay I give up. This disease known as slabitis is becoming far too invasive. Lucky for me I was inoculated back in the seventies and it's a lifetime vaccine. The one fattie I own is minus the gold label because somebody slapped an inventory sticker on it then tore it off. I still like the coin and would have it reholdered but sorrrrryyyy no, like most other copper slabbed back then NGC wont guarantee the color. Maybe counterfeit gold labels will turn up someday ha !

Those gold impressed slabs are actually fairly resilient.  The ones that are truly hard to find undamaged are the next three generations with the full width holograms.  Today trying to find a no line fatty that hasn't had the hologram ripped off by a dealers sticker is extremely difficult.

I received this beautifully original gem today.  Color and luster are amazing.  I am very pleased.  The label came off gently with no damage to the gold foil.  Thanks everyone!

Looks like a beauty! I am jealous of those photography skills! Will you consider posting a picture of your 66 for comparison? :popcorn:

Thanks for your interest.  :D

Justin only took pictures of the coin in this thread.  I do have images of the N 66 and the P 66 but they aren't as good as his.

Here you go, in any event:

The first is the NGC coin, which has some pretty nice toning and blazing luster with above average strike.

The second is the PCGS coin which is white but with an exceptional strike.  The 1945 S comes soft, so that's about as nice of a strike as you will see. 

I love to share and educate.  Anyone else have a nice 1945-S.....don't be shy, as I encourage you to show it. 

 

thank you for looking.

Could you post pictures of these with that feature still intact ?

Sorry they are black and white, this is NGC 4 no line fatty full width holgram and no barcode.

NGC 5 no line fatty with barcode and full width hologram

 

And NGC 6 the first of the with line slabs with full width hologram.

 

On all of these the hologram is on the outside of the holder and it is rather delicate.  If a dealer put a sticker on it is was pretty much impossible to remove it without ripping the hologram off.  Most examples of these today have destroyed holograms.

Thanks that is awesome Conder101 … Sorry for the Hijack walkerfan 

Conder101 I will pm to free up this thread with a question if you dont mind ...

I bought the holder not the coin.  Well, sort of....Okay, so the last thing that I needed was another 1945 S Walker, as I already have a beautifully toned NGC 66 that is very well struck up and another white and very sharp for the issue PCGS 66. 

I bought this 65 because it is my favorite NGC holder--the fabled green-labeled, gold-foiled, no-line fatty!  The coin is a gem and has decent yellow-gold, original color, too, so it's not too shabby--just maybe a little soft but that is typical for the issue.  Oh yeah, and it has the little green CAC sticker, too, so all is well and now it must be a grand slam LOL!  

I paid double sheet for it but I'm okay with that, at this point in the game.  Thank you for looking and enjoy.  Any and all comments are welcome.
