It is a little disappointing, I must admit, that a few months before the registry awards NGC has decided to remove 100,000 points from my registry sets. In some cases, this has reduced my rank from #1 to #2 or #3. In many cases, these sets have required a decade to complete and are the result of $100s of thousands of dollars of diligent investment. To see the extreme punitive measures taken on these sets in such a short period of time is something I struggle to understand. NGC prides itself on its grading consistency, and I believe that collectors seek that same consistency in the registry sets as well.
