    I know some people think slab protectors are silly, but if you accidentally scratch the slab, it might make it hard to take a good picture of it.

    And on a side note, I am going to start a slab grading company to grade slab conditions. I will then slab the slabs and make millions. :D

    Try to photograph your coin prior to accidentally scratching your slab.

    It probably isn't really neccessary, but I use the little black velvet draw string pouches for coin protectors. Simply to try to keep from accidentally scratching the slabs, and to separate them. Guess it's just personal choice.

    NGC Slab holders. I think they hold 20 coins

    I don't necessarily have 20 slabs I want to group together, and then you are restricted to putting a box that size somewhere. In a SDB sometimes it's better to have more flexibility in storage.

    I don't usually scratch them, but sometimes they come scratched.

    a protector for a coin holder. I don't know why, but that just sounds hilarious. I find it stupid enough that grading company slabs by themselves demand a pretty big premium.

    I have seen some collectors use the small sleeves designed to hold/protect cards - ie. baseball, football. The sleeves are almost exactly the right size and - I'm told - readily available and cheap.

    If the grading company is consistant with their grading, that it can be depended on, and they are truly going to back it up, then it is useful. It is also useful to have "experts" (for the top tier tpgs) be able to know which coins are cleaned and which are not genuine. Some of the fakes out there are quite good, and unless you yourself are some sort of expert in the fakes, and have looked at hundreds or thousands of real ones to compare one to, then you could be buying a fake and never know it. TPGs have their place. However, you still have to purchase the coin, and not the slab.
