Neat vintage flip.. with a very neat coin in it :)

Post by CascadeChris » Sun Nov 10, 2019 5:57 am

Picked this up today. Just saw what it was and didn't see any issues so I set it aside. Got home and thought "huh, well that's a pretty cool flip!"

Very cool! I wonder if Christie's is still around or in that location? I'll have to take a look next time I'm close to Park Ave in Manhatten.

Yeah, tre cool ain't it. I also dig all the previous pencil prices through the years from $14 to $119 all shadow erased. Also, the plastic is more modern so the card [& coin] have obviously transferred together more than once over the years and have stayed together. Cant be 100% sure this is the same 78s the card was written for in '87 but I'd say it's a very high likelyhood. Especially due to the "SPL" designation on the card and this obverse being on the DMPL line.

Hey, does anyone know precisely what "SPL" stands for?.. I'm thinking either "Special Proof-Like" or "Single Proof-Like" since its one-sided.

Also, for you literature guys, a question. Did Christie's have auction catalogs and if so is there a high likelyhood I'd be able to find the cat for this sale?
