Time to begin the chase again

Well the 2020 registry awards are in the books, it was a good year for me with 6 best in category awards one better than last year.  Hopefully I'll be able to make a couple of additions and hang on to those for next year, that task may be much more difficult depending on if the launce of the ANA registry brings in more heavy hitters from the PCGS registry.  But maybe with a couple of adds here or there I can keep up on most of last years wins.  Time to begin planning and chasing once again to further my collection and hunt down a few new coins for 2021, thanks to  fellow forum member Six MiIe Rick I was able to add a few zincoln coins to my 09 to date Lincoln set already this year including my first shield cents.

Six is a pretty solid crop! Do you get the certificates in the mail or do you pdf them? My main motivation in getting the printed ones is the 10G set and having all of them from 2016 (Ben's birth year) to however long I can hold onto the streak.

Congratulations on your Best in Category Awards, particularly as they are US coinage - maybe you should consider a move to the dark side that is world coins as there is no ANA or anything like that to worry about :ph34r:xD

It will be a great opportunity to help you build any set you are working on Coinbuf. 

Cheers to everyone now that 2020 is over and I sure hope that 2021 turns out to be a great year and things get back to normal by the end of the year.

Happy  Coin Collecting,

Rick

Thank you and a big hand to you for your registry wins including the journal award two years running, very nice accomplishment.   I've been slowly increasing the number of wins for best in category, all together I have 31 best in category awards with the first two awarded in 2012 so it has been a nice run.  Honestly I have not worried about the certificates much in the past, in fact I'm not even sure where I put the ones that NGC used to mail out automatically.   I think I will have the one for my 1940 year set mailed this year, that is my moms birth year set so I was thinking I would frame it and give it to her.

Thank you very much, and like Revenant a big congrats for your journal win.   There are some really beautiful world coins out there, I think that one day I will do some research and find a series with a design that I really like and build some sort of world set.   World coinage seems rather daunting looking through the window per se, so I'll have to dig in and review the sets in the registry and then begin the learning process before I start to buy.
