Be Careful About Look-Alike Slabs!


These are technically not counterfeit or illegal but nevertheless easily mistaken for the top-grading company in the world, PCGS.

If you see a lot with a slab like this and the auctioneer states PCGS, use the “Report This Item” link on Proxibid to alert the auction company. You also might contact PCGS, which takes the case of look-alike slabs seriously.

Proxiblog is an independent entity with no connection to the auction portal Proxibid. Our intent is to uphold basic numismatic standards as established by the American Numismatic Association and the National Auctioneer Association and to ensure a pleasurable bidding experience not only on Proxibid but also on similar portals such as iCollector and AuctionZip.
