It's a bit of a joke that buying a new car is as stressful as getting a colon screening, but there may be a bit of truth to this. Dealerships are intimidating, you're unsure about the whole buying process and you wonder if you are getting a good deal on the price and the interest rate. One way to erase a lot of stress and worry from car buying is to get pre-approved for an auto loan first.
If you have some antique coins in your possession that are placed in inexpensive mylar or cardboard holders, then it may be in your best interest to have the coins graded and placed in slabs. Slabs are archival holders made from firm, hard, and transparent acrylic. The holders are used to retain the condition of the coin inside so it does not become marred or scratched in any way. The grade of the coin will be printed directly on the slab.
