What are Silver Seeker Slabs?

Well, if you follow me on Youtube you may have seen that sometimes I give them out during my live streams!  What they are is just a small sealed coin holder (slab) that I put some of my coins in with a special label and serial number!  Then I image all of the coins and upload them to a database on this website!

Silver Seeker Slabbed coins don’t hold any value above what the same coin would if it were just raw (that is, without any holder), but I thought it would be a fun thing to create and maybe, just maybe, some people would like collecting them.

If not, of course that’s totally okay as well.  Like I said, I don’t assign them any extra value for being “slabbed”, and if you get one and don’t like it, to be honest it’s super easy to just “break” the slab and just put the coin inside a flip.

Searchable Database?

That’s right, I also created a searchable database that you can use to view the images of each Silver Seeker Slab.  As you can see in the image on the left, on the websites main page there is a search bar that says “Enter SS Slab Serial #“.  All you have to do is type the serial number of the Silver Seeker slab you have and it will pull up the original images that I took of the coin after it was slabbed.

I can also use this to provide any further relevant data to the coins, such as if they were featured in a video or otherwise.

Feel free to browse the quick Q&A below, and if you have any further questions that aren’t answered here, feel free to contact Silver Seeker directly!

Why do you make your own slabs?
Like I said above, it’s pretty much just for fun.  I do like the idea that I have coins out there with my name on them, and the website address that people can type on the back of the slab as well.  I do hope that this helps create a new way for others to discover my website and my Youtube channel!

Mostly tho, just for fun!

Do these slabs have any value?
Negative… and I don’t value them any higher than I would a raw coin of the same caliber.  Again it’s just a fun and nifty way to present some of the coins that I send out!
Do you guarantee the grade that you assign coins?
If you mean do I guarantee that NGC or PCGS will grade the coin the same as I do?  Not at all…  But keep in mind that coin grading is just a VERY educated opinion, and some more educated than others.  It’s very common for a coin to be graded one way by NGC or PCGS, then sent to another grading service to try and get a higher grade.  There are dealers that will look for “undergraded” coins that they think they can get re-certified and sell for more money.

So to make a long story short, no, I do NOT guarantee that the grade I give a coin is the same as someone else would.

Do you sell them directly?
Not yet, but that’s not out of the question in the future.  For now I just give them out on my streams, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility that I will sell Silver Seeker Slabs on my website.  If I do in the future, as I said above, they will be valued no different than if they were just a raw coin of the same grade.
Do you slab as a service?

No, I do not.  I’m not saying that down the line I won’t consider it, but if so it would ONLY be as a novelty and never as a true grading service.  There are just too many risks involved in having people send you their coins, handling them and then sending them back.

For services like this I HIGHLY recommend NGC, PCGS, and even ANACS.
