I have to say, the slabs look more secure that way. The foam made them look a little loose to me.

Nice way to make more room in the case. Very ingenious.

Thank You scopru

jbuck-the foam inserts were made to accommodate PCGS slabs and other TPG slabs and they were a little loose, the boxes are PCGS boxes..hence the better fit. (I will have to admit that it makes a little more noise now though.)

The loose-foam thing is the subject of a few negative reviews on Amazon for similar cases. It's probably not a huge deal and one could cut cardboard inserts to keep the slabs in place -- that kinda defeats the purpose but it's still a better presentation than the plastic boxes.

Alpha2814-I didn't have a problem with the fit or finish of the original case, I just needed more capacity.
I can live with the plastic boxes.

Makes sense. The box I use accommodates both PCGS and NGC slabs. The two NGC slabs I have fit really tight, almost too tight. The PCGS slabs have some wiggle, but not too much wiggle because they are tighter on the edge.

The noise would be more than worth it for the better fit, in my opinion.

@Nickels_rule -- that looks GREAT!

So, when are you going to change your handle to "Ikes_rule"?

I finally ordered the Lighthouse mahogany case last night. I guess now I have to really start working on filling it.

The Lighthouse mahogany case arrived last week and now I'm filling whatever bits of free time I have looking for good deals on ebay. I've hit a bunch of the low-hanging fruit so far...

PCGS PR69DCAM Silver 71, 72, 74, 76T2, 77, 78
PCGS PR69DCAM Clad 73, 76T1, 76T2
PCGS PR69DCAM 90 P Commemorative

Average cost on these 10 slabbed coins is $17.29. Is that reasonable or should I have my head examined?

Lots of holes to fill and trying to determine the best cost per grade on some of the business strikes. Suggestions? I know I'm not going to get 69s for most of the rest of what I'm looking for.

Since this is the Supplies forum, I'm going to stop posting here since I already decided upon and received my Lighthouse mahogany 50-slab case. I will start up another thread in US Moderns for showing off, er... ahem, displaying my collection and soliciting feedback. Thanks!
