Not sure if slab was tampered with..13107

Collector Wontizzl private msg quote post Address this user
So bought my first cbcs slab from eBay. the slab is a few years old. Its a yellow label with a date from 2016. Anyway upon inspecting it the sides were pretty rough and i can fit my fingers through the middle of the case which the internet told me was normal. I'll include pictures. Anyway my main concern is the label looking all wavey its not flat inside the plastic chamber. Tried taking pictures of it i can't get a good shot of it. So my question is, is it normal for an old label to be wavey in its plastic chambe or could it have been tampered with?. Also one question off topic the yellow label doesn't say "witnessed" just a date was it still actually witnessed or just verified. This is my first time ever posting to any forum ever if i did something wrong i apologize Sorry for being such a noob and thanks!

No tampering. That's just the way some of the old-style slabs looked. The new ones are much nicer from everything I hear.

Welcome to the forum.

To answer your second question, the “Witnessed/Verified” notation on the label was not introduced until the third label revision so the earlier slabs distinguished witnessed from verified by whether they included the date or not.

That signature was witnessed since it specifies the date and location.

@Wontizzl an easy way to see that it is untampered is the heat seal which goes from the inner well to the label (last "E" in Signature)
