Thanks - that's my goal!
I find it sad that when slabbing first started out, I remember joking with some other collectors in the area that, "watch, someone will come up with a scheme for making money for evaluating the slabbing company 'experts" opinions.
But we knew (this is not being mean, this is being factual of what we said back then) that no one would ever stupid enough to fall for a second tier of evaluation. Oh well
Dare I say, we can look back and CACkle?
If someone understands the facts behind the slabbing companies and still likes slabs, I say all the more power to them. A hobby is about fun. And the fact is that slabs can make for a great presentation and organization.
I just do not appreciate that people have been brought to believe these companies are what their marketers claim they are. until they get a verifiable and scientific system up and going (it IS 2020 isn't it?) instead of taking money for a non-verifiable product, I personally will continue to see them as taking advantage of people.
In fact I can see one day the marketers finally deciding the companies have milked the system enough and will then start a new campaign to be paid to re-slab EVERYTHING all over again:
New and Improved! Our company has moved into the new millennium (finally after the tech was available in the '90s)": LSCDG (Laser Scanning and Computer Diagnostic Grading) is here (again - we got rid of it in the 90s - too final). How you can sleep at night knowing your coins graded by the old subjective system may not have the actual/verifiable grade they deserve to have on their slab?
Special - send in your old slabs (plus any priceless heirloom) and we will re-slab them all for only twice the price you originally paid! You will forever have the assurance you have THE correct grade (until we change our grading algorithm in the computer next time we want to get money from re-slabbing everything again).
