      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries.

Obviously, NGC doesn't have an all inclusive Silver Eagles competitive set available.  According to Maribeth Bouche of NGC, "Hello, Thank you for the feedback.  The 2013 SP Enhanced finish is a special strike and was inadvertently allowed in the MS ad Proof sets."

This coin doesn't rate for the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State and Proof (Incl. Varieties) competitive set but is good enough for the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Bullion Issues competitive set.                                                                   

This doesn't make any sense.  The are only 281K of this coin available and the reverse proof is part of the complete set but the enhanced finish isn't?  A (P), (S), (W) implied mint mark is a variety but the enhanced finish isn't?  Hey, everybody, you're 2013W SP coin only rates as common bullion by NGC.  Ok, then.  I don't argue with experts.  NGC has perverted numismatics with their varieties.  Watch out, next thing you know, it will be the individual labels you have to collect as these are "varieties".    

  I'm not going to play this game with them anymore.  I've spent too much time and money building a 100% complete set for the issuing company (NGC) not allow recognition.  I'm not renewing my membership and stop my upgrading process.  I'll be selling my entire NGC collection is anyone is interested (serious offers only)  I'm getting away from them.

When was the 2013 SP Enhanced Finish Silver Eagle only from the West Point Mint Set removed?  This is definitely a variety and part of the collection.  I only figured this out by having to rearrange my boxes when NGC decided to release 2015 and 2016 eagles in 2017, and noticed I had 1 more coin than the total on the screen.  This coin needs to be placed back in to the set listing.

In the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State and Proof (Incl. Varieties) set, NGC has the 2017W Proof eagle erroneously listed as 2017(W) struck at West Point PF when it should be correctly list as 2017W PF as the W is minted on this proof coin and not inferred.

I'm an avid fan of the American Silver Eagles.  I take pride in maintaining a 100% NGC collection.  I may not be the highest ranked but I have all of them, varieties included.  I'm just wondering where, from April 10, 2017 to April 16, 2016, a mysterious 2016(S) Minted in San Francisco variety was added?  I've never seen one listed for sale and there is no population report available.  It's second quarter 2017, they didn't just mint them.  Where's this mysterious coin?  I notice there is now a spot for the 2017(S) Minted in San Francisco variety so I expect it will be issued sometime this year (but, why have a slot for a non-issued coin?) and will be on the look for it.  The 2017S PF slot is now available as the coin was released recently and I already have my coin ordered for it.  I missed out on the unlimited purchase quantity available from the mint because the big companies bought all of them in 2 minutes.  I would welcome a reply from NGC as to how these mysterious slots came from.
