No they're cheaper and you don't need a membership.

Are they worth the Money (ANACS ) ? I have 2 coins won here by one of the members in our Contest game that are ANACS graded . They seem to be graded correctly based on the photo grade pictures . I will post pics later.

Sal, considering you can break a coin out of a slab, resubmit it to the same company the slab came from, and never be guaranteed of same grade, then yes, ANACs is worth it. People tend to pay more for PCGS slabs, b/c that is the way the mass mentality has trended. There will always be favorites with the masses, and the favorites are not always necessarily any better than the rival companies.

There are four main companies the masses generally believe to be worthy of patronage, and ANACS is one of them. Daniel has a list someplace on his website about companies to look out for.

For profits, I believe PCGS with a CAC sticker goes for higher money on eBay. For reality...grading is not a science (could have been looong ago - not as many profits is possibly why its not). What you pay for is for how well the marketing departments have "sold" their company to the masses.

"Buy the coin and not the slab."
Please let me know if you find errors in my contributions to this forum. I am always learning.

What is a coin slab?

:eureka:
A sealed plastic container to:
1. Authenticate your coin
2. Preserve your coin
3. Designate a variety
4. Distinguish a proof strike
