NGC or PCGS slab coin protector case

What do you think of this slab protector? I bought a sample for an NGC and PCGS slab for $4.50 each shipped. I liked it and will use it for a favorite coin that I would like to see/handle daily. Thanks for looking and any comments.

    That's actually not a bad idea IMO. Where did you get 'em?

    I think it’s pretty silly. :open_mouth:

    It looks very well protected. A bit overkill for my tastes, but if you feel the need and/ or like the look,....

    It reminded me of those beautiful sofa wrapped in clear vinyl to protect the fabric :s or those expensive hard shell luggages protected in their own luggage covers.

    I’m on the fence. Slabs already take up a lot of room as it is. Chances are the slab protector will probably be put into another box for storage. Before long, something the size of a roll of half dollars needs something the size of a shoebox to house it.

    Not for me but it's always interesting to see what's out there.

    The protective slabs were enough for me, now we have pro-protective slabs and another size slab holder? A little much for me.

    I like it.
    It's possible that a lone slab in a suitcase could bump up against something and get messed up.
    I'm in for one.

    It would be good for people with special, valuable coins that are shown/displayed frequently. As a standard use, I would not do that.... Cheers, RickO

    I could see using this for a first and second gen NGC holders, doily holders, white rattlers that one may display. but for average use it looks to bulky.

    Exactly my thought, only rare slabs or extremely valuable trophy coins, otherwise a regular slab box would do just fine.
    Definitely would use one for a black NGC, etc...

    I like them!

    Looks to me like a slab for a slab. Hmmm, kind of like a certification for a certification.

    For just protecting the slab from handling I've found that the sleeves made for sports cards work well. But my problem is getting the slab in the sleeve.

    Haha...sounds like a George Carlin bit.

    Looks like an otter box for slabs. lol

    Personally if I want to protect a slab I just put in a Ziploc sandwich bag. But then I have a reputation for being cheap.

  • It would save money - but storage is an issue.

    Re-slabbing costs on a CAC coin is a problem.

    It's official. We're now slabbing slabs. I knew this day wasn't far off.

  • BochimanBochiman Posts: 24,729 ✭✭✭✭✭

    People are going off into the boonies on this already.

    Here's how I see it.....the slabs do a great job of protecting the coin. HOWEVER, how many people here have ever had a slab get chipped/cracked/scratched up? Harder to sell and not cheap to get reholdered (time/cost).

    So, while I wouldn't get these for every coin, if I had a coin that saw action (ie...a dealer or just like to look at a coin), I wouldn't view it with derision or as a bad thing.

    Who here hasn't seen a slab that is too scratched up to really get a great look at the coin inside and wished it was reslabbed?

    For $4.50, it isn't cheap, but it is a ton cheaper than reslabbing would be. Sheesh people

    I've been told I tolerate fools poorly...that may explain things if I have a problem with you. Current ebay items - Nothing at the moment

    People were already paying extra to have someone agree and slap stickers on slabs that were already certified and graded so why not.

    Well for a coin that you may want to handle now and then, this beats the cherry wood display case with or without glass. It's cheaper and you can see the reverse without taking the coin out of the case. If anyone is interested here is the eBay link for an NGC slab (seller also has a listing for a PCGS type). Thanks again.
