    Has anyone come across a slab holder that will accommodate PCGS, NGC, and ANACS slabs? I am looking for a 20-25 slab holder similar to the PCGS blue and green plastic boxes. I see a couple on Amazon with decent reviews but figured I would inquire here as well!

    This would hold every slab I have ever bought...and at one time or another has.

    Not exactly what you are looking for but the Lighthouse slab albums would.

    As far as boxes the slabs are all various sizes especially the ANACS ones so it would likely have to be one of the ones with the foam cutouts. The PCGS box dimensions would work just fine with the NGC slabs if the box was just a little taller

    Another alternative would be to use the NGC shipping boxes. They're made of cardboard and will hold 20 or 50 slabs. NGC wraps them completely with reinforced shipping tape, so they will last forever. Another nice thing about them is that the slabs will not rattle like they do in the plastic slab boxes. I've been using them for more than 10 years without any problems. You can use a Sharpie to identify what each box contains.

    If you know someone who submits a lot of coins to NGC for grading, maybe you can arrange to cover the cost of shipping.

    You may use the plastic NGC boxes, and instead of putting 20 holders in one box, put 19 in, with the slabs installed diagonally, so one edge of the first slab in the box is in slot one and the other edge of the slab is in slot two, and so on.

    The reason PCGS boxes won't work for you is because NGC slabs are too tall.

    I've done this for years, and it works great for me.

    Never thought of that and makes perfect sense!

    It's definitely a great alternative with what NGC charges for their actual plastic ones.

    And the reason NGC boxes no longer work is because they made the PCGS slabs thicker.
