Hello, my first post here. 

I was looking through the 30 Year Evolution of the NGC Holder, to see which generation I have.  I don't see it.  I'm guessing maybe it is a version of the 1997 holder?  Your help is very much appreciated, thanks.

I'm not finding one that matches up with your slab, JF.  I don't want to say it's a counterfeit because that would likely be an overreaction.

But the listings here do not match up with yours.  The black lined bars are usually BELOW the number.  But they're showing holders for a Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle so maybe for small denomination coins it was different.

I'm sure Dave @ NGC or another veteran can clear it up.

The Vintage is Chateau Orlando de Clemet 2004, possibly from the west-facing slope. It was a good year for reds and has held up well.

I do not have the title in front of me, however, I do not think that the book is available anywhere.

NGC used T for Toned and W for White around 2000-01. The marketplace seemed to be asking for such a thing at the time, yet it never really took hold and was discontinued after a few months.

This is the book in question. The copy in my library is the Second Edition from 2003. I haven't seen it for sale in at least 15 years, though I suppose it may turn up online from time to time.

Biblio.com has it for sale - $350.00 + $4.50 shipping to USA.

Also RobertsBookshop.com - same price.

Maybe Condor101 will drop by.

Yes, you have an NGC 8. As mentioned in Conder's post, these slabs were only used for about 4 weeks. They are pretty uncommon. 

Did Conder post ?  I don't see it.  

4 weeks is super-short to utilize a new holder design...very surprising.

Thats pretty neat they were used for such a short time. I have one of my Washington quarters in the same type slab.

I seem to recall the W and T labels lasting longer than four weeks, though I don't remember whether it spanned more than one holder type.

Yes, read Conder's post that Just Bob posted. The NGC 8 was a very short-lived slab.

Yes, from my recollection the W and T was used on multiple slab types. NGC 8 features the very small numbers below the barcode - which was only used for a very short period.

Because it's the same book.  On Biblo it identifies the seller as Robertsbookshop.com.

True. They also used PQ on the label.
