Well, sorta -- NGC is slabbing GSA holders now, to preserve their
historical significance (or somesuch reason). Picture here:

It says on the slab "This is not an NGC holder". Ceci n'est pas une
pipe?

I read in coinage magazine NGC was not going to grade GSA CC coins. Ed

Aw c',mon.. all they're doing is grading the dollars while leaving them in
the GSA holders, and putting a tamper-proof (!?) NGC label or two around
it..

What's the big deal??..

Heck, it doesn't even look like a Morgan Dollar. :-)

Interesting!  Now I wonder which grading service will be the first to
slab those red Paramount holders containing dollars from the Redfield
Hoard.  Paramount originally called most of those coins "MS-65" to
preserve their investment appeal (or somesuch reason), but now it's
time for someone like NGC to state "this is not an MS-65".

You're right on target, Bob. Rene Magritte would have had fun with
slabbed slabs.
