Open Holders

The Sun Collection


For all of the members who had questions on the open holder situation...

I'm surprised that no one has posted a definitive answer to this question, but I will. If you seem to find excess plastic around the edges, this is normal, and should not be thought of as a defect, quality control ineptitude, or tampering. To fully understand this, one must first understand how sonic sealing works. When coins are sonically sealed, high pitched sonic vibrations are converted to heat, which in turn melt the plastic surrounding the coin, essentially fusing them together. There is no glue used, so if you think the excess plastic is glue, it's not; it is just plastic that melted a bit more than other plastic, causing it to splash around the edges a bit. So, if you find these, do not worry, because as long as the certification number can be verified by NGC, it's an NGC coin.
