If I was going to purchase such a high priced RARE coin as this I would want a CAC sticker on it. Just sayin. But maybe that's just me lol...Joe
The bitterness of low quality is remembered long after the the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

FACT if I stop posting, trillions and trillions of transistors would be out of work.
Authenticity is what is important -- not a bunch of silly stickers!

Contributor to the Red Book, Judd Patterns and many other fine numismatic books, discoverer of two gold patterns, and author of numerous coin research articles.
I don't even think it matters to the big players if NGC or PCGS slabbed this coin due to its rarity and just wanting the authenticity. It will go for big money either way. Also I think due to the rarity, it will sell for nearly the same in whichever holder
Maybe a PCGS one will sell for 14,000,001 and the NGC one 14,000,000
Honestly, CAC and to a lesser extent, the grade, are more or less irrelevant on ultra-rarities such as the Brasher and other coins like the 1804 $1, 1933 $20, 1913 5¢, etc...
