Some enhancements to the NGC census report were recently released. The report has been expanded to include population figures for coins that bear the Plus Designation (). NGC began using the Plus Designation on May 25, 2010 and applies it to all eligible coins at the high end of their assigned grade, approaching the quality requirements for the next grade. In addition to their superior technical merit, coins receiving a must have above-average eye appeal. More information about the Plus Designation may be found at the NGC website.
Another enhancement to the NGC census report is a feature where users may expand or collapse the listings of varieties and pedigrees for a given coin. To view a certain variety, find the date and mint mark of a specific coin and click on the arrow () sign to display the different varieties and pedigrees for that particular date and mint mark. For example a 1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar has 10 different recognized varieties in the NGC Census. Click on the arrow () sign that appears just before 1794 in the Year/Mint column to bring up the ten different varieties and it will display the different grades NGC has assigned to all ten varieties. We hope you enjoy these most recent improvements.
The NGC online census is updated weekly on Mondays to offer the latest figures for coins graded by NGC. Access to the online census is a benefit of paid NGC Collectors Society membership. Not already a member? Join today!
