    i have cherried a few tough bust varieties in some off the wall holders. all were smooth transactions. what you see is what you get, low quality coins at low low prices. i wouldn't purchase anything from them in hopes of turning a profit ie their investment/dealer lots but; if you know what to look for, [or need to fill a hole] you can get some hard to find/unattributed varieties at low type prices.

    edit to add; with some patience one could find a few keys that would definitely cross over to better holders.

    Here's the URL. Seems like a decent place, except I don't like the real blurry pics. Just me. Never done business with them however.

    Their ancients are actually somewhat realistically priced. (usually the silly slabbed pieces go for way too much!)

    EDIT: Nobody cares, I know. lol ;)

    I've done business with them several times with no problems and excellent service. They deliver exactly what they promise and what is pictured. As said above, if you know exactly what you are looking for and aren't expecting premium quality coins, it's a good place to shop with very competitive prices. They don't pretend to be anything other than a "cheap slab" store, and they are very good at it.

    Those that understand ancients care. Course I'm not one of them but your input is very valid.

    I've known about the site for years yet never bought from them.

    I DO know these guys buy in bulk big time and know what they are looking for to turn a profit. I was in my local dealer's store one day when one of their buyers showed up. Guy bought a ton of raw Morgans and Peace dollars.

    I'm thinking they have a pretty good eye to get this many coins slabbed by "legitimate" TPGs but as was mentioned earlier I wouldn't order a ton to make a profit.

    Cherry picking or long term more feasible.

    I'm just afraid about turning every topic I touch into one on ancients. I recall certain members used to do that. (I think you know who I mean!)

    Has some connection to what used to be Chattanooga Coins. Has some connection to one of the older lesser slab companies......

    Some stuff is a good deal, but they sell lesser quality of some better TPG`s....... Uglier, perhaps scuffy looking Morgans come to mind.....

    For a online coin dealer their prices don't seem too bad. But I have no experience ordering from them.

    I used to hunt for my slab bargains on ebay, scored several nice pieces over the years. Since the USPS severely increased their prices to Canada, I decided to check this store out. I've known about The Cheap Slab Store for a couple of years now. I approached them recently and was pleasantly surprised at the willingness to ship north of the border, the shipping price is more than fair and there are some nice affordable gems to be found among the weaker, less attractive grades. Since the beginning of the month I've placed a couple of orders and all is perfect, so far. Very pleased.

    Recent arrivals... ;)

    They don't even care. Here's an excerpt from their blurb on a Gordian III DD...

    Just buy it. It's got something on the reverse. Whatever.

    You do realize it was about 6 years ago that Ardi posted that comment? The thread was resurrected yesterday. :)
