The point of this app is that you do not need to remove the slab because it is actually working through the slab.

I have purchased around 30 American Silver Eagles from eBay since January 2021 as a novice and with careful examination (just observations) found that 9 had the slabs tampered with and didn't have accurate NGC or PCGS labels and 1 PCGS was in an aftermarket slab with now obvious to me fake information. The crazy part is that all the number were accurate numbers when entered into the verification checkers. I am happy to share eBay names of the sellers and photos if appropriate and valuable.

Thanks

The makers of the fake slabs have been using real numbers that will verify practically since they started back in 2007. Just verifying the number won't really tell you much of anything. That was why it was a BIG step forward when NGC started photographing every coin they slabbed and posting the images on the verification page as well. In many cases you can expand the images enough to find matching marks on the coin in hand with the coin in the image.

Unfortunately the other top three TPG's only have a small fraction of the images as compared to NGC. NGC still has the problem that the first 20 years or so of the coins they slabbed don't have images either.

You can buy very realistic fakes from China on the Dark Web and sell them as genuine.

You can buy them on ebay and several other readily available website. No need to go to the "Dark Web".
