Did you send them off for encapsulation?
I don't have strong opinions about slabs either way. They make for a nice and orderly presentation, protect the coin, and provide a worthy provenance. On the other hand, you can't physically handle and examine the coins, measure, weigh, etc., and taking pictures is more difficult. Plus it costs money.
As of right now I have only one slabbed coin, and Augustus tetradrachm.
Yeah I work for David Lawrence Rare Coins, and we primarily deal in slabbed coins, so while I agree with your preference for raw, we did get photos of them before sending them to NGC, so that’s good. I also love the Marcus. I thought it had a shot at MS.
