What are the chances of this happening?

Taking a cracked out holder from an unsuccessful upgrade/crossover and convincing PCGS/NGC that the holder was accidentally damaged and getting the coin reholdered? The holder is not completely smashed out but a nice big crack.

Do you mean the coin was removed from the holder? If so, I would expect zero possibility of PCGS or NGC simply taking your word for what happened and relabbing the coin without regrading the piece.

jimbucks---- Years ago, I bought two Walkers from a seller that I knew to be honest. They had been in old ANACS holders----but, he had cracked them out to put them in an album.

 

Well, I bought both of the halves and sent them "raw" to NGC for grading. The real expensive 1920S Walker got holdered while the 17S Reverse coin got a BB

 

The seller had sent me the old ANACS inserts for both coins. I took a picture of that 17S Rev coin. It had a carbon spot that matched the seller's pictures on Ebay. I then sent the 17S Rev coin back to ANACS----told them the "TRUE" story---- sent the new picture of the coin with the matching carbon spot-----and ANACS reholdered the coin in its original grade.

 

Subsequently, I resold that 17S Rev coin at a profit. I still own that 1920S coin. I guess that being honest about it-----well maybe that carbon spot proved the coin was the same one. At any rate, it worked out that one time. Take care. Bob [supertooth]
