Our intention for the Certified Registry (CR) has been to develop a system that could adapt itself for the good of the numismatic community. Toward that end we have improved and expanded it on an ongoing basis.
Our intention for the Certified Registry (CR) has been
to develop a system that could adapt itself for the
good of the numismatic community. Toward that end we
have improved and expanded it on an ongoing basis. The
newest round of changes is fairly extensive, designed
based on feedback from the participants, and makes the
CR more "playable" than ever before.
The biggest change you'll notice in the CR is that
we are now displaying the actual scores for sets and
coins. Originally these scores were not displayed in
detail. This was done as a way to make sure that the
CR was about the coins and not the system. As people
used the system, however, it became clear that deciding
what coins to pursue among the various choices was tough.
It might be that a participant finds two coins equally
appealing, but all other things being equal, would like
to acquire the one that helps his CR set the most.
The new default page loaded when you click on the Registry
link now shows a listing of all the sets that have been
changed in the last 3 days, from most recent to least
recent. It will show you the set score, the percent
completion, the date it was updated, and the cumulative
change in score from that day. The set lists now show
two icons with each set, a camera and a sheet of paper.
The camera indicates (as before) that this set has coins
with pictures attached. The sheet of paper indicates
that this set has coins with user descriptions filled
When you drill into a particular set, the list of set
coins shows you if each coin has a photo or a note,
when that coin was added to the set, and how many points
that coin is worth.
As always, you can click on a coin's ID number to see
that coin's details. Now, however, you can also click
on the SLOT that coin is in. This will display a list
of all the coins that are allowed in this slot, and
what the scores are for each of the possible grades.
Once you are looking at the possible coins in a slot
and their scores, you can click on the description on
that coin to view the NGC population.
We invite you to play around with the system and give
us your feedback. As always, we hope to make the Certified
Registry as good as it can be.
