ICCS First Flip Auction

The Canadian Numismatic Company has ICCS’s first prototype flip up for grabs in their December 29th, 2012 Christmas Auction.

Is this something you’d be interested in owning or does the whole idea of collecting a slab seem silly?  It is certainly a piece of numismatic history, but just how collectable is it?  It will be interesting to see what the final hammer price ends up at.
