Is this a SEGS slab or is some dealer slabbing in the back room?

Hi folks,

I could not locate the thread I started, but got some nice feedback on
slabbing and wanted to follow-up. This is the picture of the coin I bought,
along with its "Certified Genuine" slab label. Off another site, I saw the
logo for SEGS, which was better than anything I could find on the SEGS web
site. It looks to me like the imprinted logo on the capsule is similar to
part of the SEGS logo, especially a "C" with something looking like stars
within. Do you think this might be a SEGS graded coin (yes, I know that SEGS
ain't the best by any means, but I did buy the coin, not the slab), or that
someone was using discarded SEGS capsules?

Thanks, Joel

Not SEGS.   I think that type of holder is now marketed to the public and
anyone can buy them, type their own inserts and sell them as "certified".
What you have is comparable to a raw coin in a 2X2, with "Certified Genuine"
written on the 2X2, except the plastic slab is fancier.    Bill

It's a Coin World holder and it isn't certified.

It's the Coin World logo

http://www.coinworld.com/

They sell snap-together slab type holders.
