I recently received several slabbed coins in the INB coin slabs. I am new to collecting and so I was trying to find out about this firm but have not been able to find anything on them. Anybody know about this?

never heard of them. Probably your average basement slab company. Post some pictures of the slabs and some close ups of some coins. While they may not be a well known grading company and more so a company that nobody will take a grade from seriously, It doesn't mean that their grading isn't accurate.
ALWAYS PURCHASE A COIN FOR THE COIN, NOT THE SLAB AND THE NUMBER ON IT.

mcw!


This company is considered a "basement slabber" and numismatists do not recognize the grades they put on their coins because they often overgrade them. When buying slabbed coins, stick with PCGS, NGC, or ANACS.

FWIW, their little green 'slabs' aren't even sonically sealed. So you can take that "MS67" quarter out, spend it and put a road-rash special in it's place. Grading will be about as accurate.

Dealers who are certified idiots buy their junk by the 100 coin lots to fill space in boxes at coin shows. Why I can't imagine...

Some dealers are defiantly stupid. I went to a pawn shop in Omaha (not the one I usually go to) and I looked at their coins. Over HALF of them were in basement slabs, and 95% of them were in some type of slabs. There was 1 coin that sticks out in my mind, a 1992 Silver Eagle graded MS-70 by INB (or SGS, can't remember) and their asking price was $250...
Maybe I should go unload some of my SGS slabs on 'em!

makeanoffernow on eBay sells a lot of their slabs. I wonder if there is an association between the two.

Since SGS (Star Grading Service) was shut down there seems to be opportunities for other basement TPGs to fill that void.

So, that's what Lincoln looks like without his beard.

Also, What font is that 'D' in?

A grade would be nice.

Jest sayin'.

About 2 months ago I got a Roosevelt dime graded ms70 in a INB slab, found out it's a basement eBay seller who way over grades his coins. Luckily I only spent a dollar on it.
