Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State, Specimen, and Proof, Including Varieties Set

As those who read me know, I only collect American Silver Eagles.  I'm not an expect by any means, but it would seem to me that a complete collection including varieties would include all varieties. not just some.  This set has made varieties of where they were minted without a mint mark, yet, there are not any slots for the Annual Dollar Silver Eagles from 2007, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2016.  NGC has graded them as being from the Annual Dollar Set.  NGC currently has 114 slots in

NGC at it again.

Couple of days ago, NGC notified me of a pending certification transfer and if I wanted to accept or reject.  I rejected it as it is part of my 100% silver eagle collection and had not sold it.  I replied to the email that I rejected it and dina said no problem.  it wouldn't go through.  Imagine my surprise to seethe coin was removed from my set and given to another user and I can't get it back into my collection.  I just took a photo of the coin in question a few minutes ago.  I need it put bac

Complete Silver Eagles Competitive set?

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.

2013 SP Eagle from West Point Mint Set removed?

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.

Silver Eagles slot listed wrong

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.

2016(S) & 2017(S) American Silver Eagles

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 s

2015(S) Struck at San Francisco American Silver Eagles?.

Are there any 2015(S) Struck at San Francisco American Silver Eagles graded? Are there any 2015(S) Struck at San Francisco American Silver Eagles graded? I'm just asking because there has been a slot for it all year, yet I have not came across one yet. If NGC is planning on grading any, when will be the release date?

2014 Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof Set

Why has this slot been taken away? A few weeks ago, I was looking at my Silver Eagle collection and noticed a slot for a 2014 Limited Edition Proof Eagle. I was intrigued as I had not heard of the set before. I went to the US Mint website, and, lo and behold, there it was listed. I read that it was limited to only 50,000 sets and was available so I ordered one. I then went on an exhaustive search to find an NGC graded set, which I did. I received it and came to the website to enter
