Slabbed vs Unslabbed Coins

Coin collecting and investing is a popular pastime for many people. One phenomena of the hobby is slabbed and unslabbed coins. Slabbed coins are graded and encapsulated by a third party service. This provides a guarantee of authenticity, a 1-70 numerical grade and protection inside a holder. In the coin world there are three main companies that slab coins; PCGS and NGC and most recently CAC. Most coins are unslabbed or "raw"without being graded by a third party service. Slabbed coins are often preferred because of the protection and guarantee that they provide, but others have a preference towards raw coins solely for the ability to hold and feel the coin in hand outside of a holder. Here at US Coin Trust we provide both slabbed and unslabbed coins for all collectors' interests.
