I was seeking to solve the missing serial number on my incorrectly labeled PCGS HK-534 Alaska-Hawaii Statehood medal (left in picture).
I took a towel and mallet. Within seconds the statehood medal was de-slabbed without damaged.
As I was looking for the serial number on its edge, I found none……
The medal is genuine, but without an edge serial number….
