    I checked out SampleSlabs.com but couldn't find it in the list of slabs? Anybody have any idea which PCGS era this is from?

    I saw that go by at the Heritage Long Beach auction (see first link) and wondered the same thing. SampleSlabs.com doesn't show it. It went to a CU Forum member who posted the Heritage pic (see second link)

    Conder101 would be able to answer that question, he is the king of slab info. I think there are threads on both NGC and PCGS forums about slab history.

    " This was the regency Slab, a special premium slab that was intended to allow the collector to recognize "special" coins. Either to showcase very rare pieces, special pedigree coins or even special events. The regency slab is a large slab, five inches high and three across at the widest point. They cost $50 ($30 slabbing fee plus $20 for the special holder and personalized inscription) and you were allowed to specify a two line inscription to appear on the front label. (Maximm 44 characters.) According to Rick Montgomery these were produced from 1992 to 1995 but so far I've only been able to trace them from Mid 1994 to the first quarter of 1995."
