SP IS NOT MS

The 2013 W SP is a variety coin of the American Silver Eagle. It has no place in an MS set, especially adding it 4 years after being minted. There is a category for the American Silver Eagle varieties. One day I have a 100% complete set, and next day I don't. All those bogus eagles that we had to have ( and paid premium prices for), are not included in the mint state collection, but as varieties. The P and S Eagles belong there too. Ever notice there are no NGC 2017 FDOI S Silver Eagles? Another bogus coin that we have to have? Next year maybe we will get a CC mint mark?

In NGC's defence, they usually only add all these coins because people send emails requesting them so that they can get a leg up on their competitors.

Yeah--NGC registry has gotten weird, almost as if they are being intentionally self-destructive. In 2 of my sets that I collected until a week ago they added slots for duplicate coins with different names. Makes completing the sets 100% impossible unless I buy 2 of the same issue and get 2 separate labels.

Also they added a "display" coin which is worth no points but prevents the 100% completion feeling that is the purpose of collectors. There are a few US proof sets where they included the SP coins also ( and also gave out of proportion points for them--look at Jefferson 5c proofs as an example).

I am so done with the registry. I am slowly transferring all of my coins to "custom sets" and building the correct slots on the custom set page and will fill them there--I'm not in it for competition anyhow so the custom set works better which allows coins in PCGS slabs also as a bonus ( except for the time to type in and list all of the slots, it is a preferable place to build accurate sets.)

I agree with namvette68. The 2013 SP just does not seem to belong in a mint state set.  Recently it was in the set, out of the set, and then back in the set...

Thank you for the feedback.

The U.S. Mint developed a new special finish for the 2013 West Point special 2-coin set. This finish, denoted as "Enhanced Uncirculated" by the Mint, is called "Specimen - Enhanced Finish" by NGC. This was the first time the Mint used this finish. "Uncirculated" descriptions by the US Mint are usually designated as "Mint State" by our graders.

Thank you for the feedback, jackson64.

We did delete duplicate slots a few weeks ago. If you see other duplicates, we are happy to take care of them. You may reach us via email if you prefer at registry@ngccoin.com. Thank you for your assistance, and please let us know when we may assist next.

Ali, I must have been talking to the wrong person. I get such great, polite service when we discuss things but my discussion on this page with these issues    page 4 of "need a new slot"  with an NGC rep had me so frustrated I just deleted all of my Canada sets from the registry. Oh well, my "back to my numismatic roots" endeavor has been more fun than the registry has been for quite a while. Thanks for all you have done throughout my time here.
