I'm eligible!!

Ok down you animals I'm already spoken for, lol no what I'm referring to here is that this year for the first time ever I will have a registry set (multiple sets in fact) that are eligible for NGC major awards.  My 1936 mint set has 10 of the fifteen slots filled and all the coins are NGC certified, yep not one PCGS coin in this set.  And I expect that I will have high quality photos and descriptions for all of the current ten coins in the set by Dec 4th.  I have set a goal for myself to have this set 100% complete by 2023 so that will be one of my collecting areas of focus going forward.

 

My 1940 set is the one I'm most proud of as this set was put together to celebrate my mothers birth year.  The 1940 set does have three of the 14 slots filled with PCGS coins and while it would be nice to have this set also all NGC it would be impossible to replace my 1940s dime, while only graded as MS65FB this coin has been awarded a gold CAC bean and I believe that it would at least grade as an MS67FB coin today.

 

Also this year I have restructured my 1909-1958 Lincoln set in order to meet the 75% rule, sadly I had to reduce the overall score with some under graded coins.  And while this set is actually 100% complete I will also have to remove three of the PCGS coins to meet the 75% rule so for this years competition it will appear as though it is not complete.  However my set is the only set to have 100% nice high quality photos; and 100% full complete descriptions (well it will as I am finishing up the last of the photos now).  There is not another set in this category that can even come close to this claim, most have a few of the stock NGC photos and a handful of comments; and most of those comments are a word or two at best.

 

This is not hold the press crazy amazing news, but for the first time ever a few of my sets are over the 75% NGC coins in the set rule and the at least 50% complete rule.  While I do not expect to win any major awards its nice that at least I have something that can be considered.  :takeit:

Ever think about resubmitting this one, that is a great looking dime. ^^

Never mind. I just read your notes on it. Good luck.

Somehow I knew what this was about when I saw that title (not the specific sets but what you were eligible for). ;)

You're clearly doing this wrong though. You're supposed to put all of your hopes and dreams into one set / basket and set yourself up for disappointment. lol 

The discussion about reconfiguring your penny set is interesting given the conversation we've been having in the Registry forum.

Honestly I think about it all the time, but deep at heart I'm a coin collector and the coin itself is what is important more so than the grade.  And I just really like the look of those old holders like the rattler so I really don't think I'll ever send it in.

Lol, However this way I have set myself up for a triple dose of disappointment:devil::D.  I have been looking for the past few months for the three coins I need in NGC plastic but just did not find the right coins at a price I was ok spending.  I could have filled the slots with any ho-hum example just to have the slot filled with an NGC example but I just will not do that anymore.  So while not absolutely necessary I did the math and figured that removing the three coins will be the best way to reach the end goal, it stings a bit though as I really hate to have the set appear incomplete.

 

Anyhow thank you all, while winning awards is not the reason I participate in the registry I thought to myself that if I am going to participate it would be nice to at least be able to have a chance for one of the major awards.

Looks like some of your pictures in the 1936 set and the 1940 set aren't displaying right. I don't know how it looks to you but you might want to check. Sometimes images break and sometimes you get upload errors.

@Revenant I have found that it depends on if your on the new or old registry, I recently asked Ali a question about a problem I was seeing with inventory on the old system and she informed me that they are aware of it but as they are not really spending time maintaining the old system that some issues were popping up.  I have noticed that if I update photos and descriptions on the old system that most of the time those will populate the new system.  However if I make those changes on the new system they do not seem to be reflected in the old system, so far I have been making most of my changes to the new system as I expect that is what the registry team will be looking at when they do their review.  But I will also go in and update the old system too just in case.  If you view that set on the new registry all the photos are there and it also includes my custom set photo that you see at the top of the set. 

I plan to spend some time this weekend trying to finish up all the descriptions but there is a ton of info I still need to add and I may run out of time unfortunately.

Enjoy the family if you can though. :)

I have a note coming that is supposed to arrive in the mail Monday the 30th. I have a description pre-written for it and my fingers crossed because it would be a very nice last minute addition to my 3rd dollar set.

Sweet sounds like a nice newp for your set, yes family first although this year will be much less family.  My oldest daughter is pregnant and is staying away from everyone due to the C19 and youngest is working in another state.  So this will be a very small turkey day gathering, you and your family have a happy thanksgiving!!
