Looks like rim dings on the coin but its not. Theres 3 little spots on the plastic all at the edge of the coin. Looks like where the slab was fused together or something. Not really sure what it is but its in the plastic. Just the angle I took the pic is bending the light or something of that nature giving it that anomally.Lumii_20220323_203702046.thumb.jpg.e93219f105d10a62fa7c43c83fdb844f.jpgLumii_20220323_203327197.thumb.jpg.6fb3ec984867ea8af84b738517e98827.jpg

Thank you all. Ill probably never try to get an upgrade. I really like it in the older holder.  Prob just leave it as is. Been in there for around 30 years so it deserves to stay there. I may try for a bean one of these days. It also came from my friend like that so ill keep it like that. Its gonna stay in my collection for as long as Im alive so Im very happy of how it is. And glad to have a rattler in my collection. A little piece of history itself.

It is a Gen 1.2 used from 1986 to 1989,

If it's 1986-89, then it's Gen 1.2, right ?  

I may have mistyped, the label's color doesn't match up with 2.1.  It matches closer with 1.2 (1986-89).

The color of his label is tough to see if it's faded light green or white.

It's 1.2.....color, font, style, back all match up with 1.2 from 1986-89.

I think Coinbuf was right on the years, just mistyped the generation.  I'll let him tell us.

So it's Generation 1.2 from 1986-89.  We all agree ?

A great many of the coins still in these rattler holders are there because, like your coin, they are very common dates and the cost to try for an upgrade usually costs more than the coin is worth if it upgrades.   Dealers love these because they can hype the under graded lore and many times get close to the next grade money without spending the money to actually try for the upgrade.  

I never thought about that.  Cost of a 1-point upgrade not worth doing for many sub-$100 coins I bet.

Don't put a lot of faith in label color, the colors weren't stable until their generation 3.1  The generation 3.0 is best known for the unstable color.  Labels can be white, several shades of yellow, several of green and all the way through sky blue depending on whether the yellow or blue dye was breaking down, or both.  At one time I had over a dozen different "colors" of labels for that generation holder.
