IRVINE, Calif. – Teletrade, America’s largest fully automated Internet auction company for certified coins and currency, will auction “The Green Holder Collection” on Sunday, June 1, 2008, in online Auction #2536. The auction will be live at www.teletrade.com from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. eastern time and will include more than 1,500 certified coin lots.
The complete catalog will be viewable on the Teletrade website beginning Friday, May 23. Highlights from “The Green Holder Collection” will be on display at the Long Beach Expo May 29-31 at table 427.
“The Green Holder Collection” is the result of the combined efforts of two California collectors and consists of more than 250 coins in classic PCGS “green holders,” including an interesting selection of first generation “rattlers.”
These early generation PCGS holders characterized by their green labels were used throughout the 80s and 90s, dating back to the very first days of PCGS, and are coveted by a large segment of numismatic enthusiasts who appreciate the history of not only the coin but also the holder that encases it.
“It is unusual to see such an impressive hoard of early generation PCGS holders, and many have not been on the market since they were initially acquired by these collectors in the 80s and 90s,” said Ian Russell, president of Teletrade.
“The coins tell the history of the country, and these holders speak to the history of coin collecting, which makes this collection even more fascinating and desirable to enthusiasts.”

1804 1/2c PCGS MS-65RB
1881 Cent PCGS MS-67RD
