    Sample Slabs

    "Sample slabs are produced to be given away at shows and major coin events to collectors and dealers so they can become oriented with the services holder or new label type. It is a means of free advertising that promotes the service’s slab. A few companies made special types over the years just for dealers, but overall they are given away at shows to the general public. Each slab has a low value coin such as a Lincoln cent or Roosevelt dime within, but occasionally a service will use a more collectible item like a Sacagawea dollar or commemorative half instead. The latest trend is to use the most current State Quarter in sample slabs. It is relatively cheap for the service and a high enough value coin for a collector to keep."
