Show Your Sample slabs

Recommended Posts

102_0892.JPG102_0947.JPGShow your sample slabs 

There are some great samples out there so let's see yours. They is getting to be a popular collectable now.

This is the first world sample slab from PCGS, it is getting hard too find now and it has sold for some premium  prices

All the best

In short, a sample slab is what a grading company's us too show the public their newest holder. 

When PCGS first started grading world coins, this was their first sample of a world coin they produced.

It showed collectors what the coin and holder would look like together.

So every time a new type of holder comes out so does the sample slab.

There are hundreds of sample slabs from every grader with some command a high premium

too collectors. Collecting sample slabs is becoming very popular now with many new collectors coming on board.

Hope this helps

Received this one directly from them, but have not been able to find any on the market anywhere.  David Lawrence Rare Coins' pet project when the TPGs were going more quacky than normal back in 2008.

I used to live a short distance from DLRC. I attempted to go to their store once but I don't think they allow drop-ins.

I also used to live very, very close to another dealer. I forget the name but it was one of the dealers that advertised very prominently on many different pages in Coinage and CoinWorld magazines. On the back cover. Also wasn't allowed to drop in. Boo.
