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.
This doesn't make any sense. The are only 281K of this coin available and the reverse proof is part of the complete set but the enhanced finish isn't? A (P), (S), (W) implied mint mark is a variety but the enhanced finish isn't? Hey, everybody, you're 2013W SP coin only rates as common bullion by NGC. Ok, then. I don't argue with experts. NGC has perverted numismatics with their varieties. Watch out, next thing you know, it will be the individual labels you have to collect as these are "varieties".
|I'm not going to play this game with them anymore. I've spent too much time and money building a 100% complete set for the issuing company (NGC) not allow recognition. I'm not renewing my membership and stop my upgrading process. I'll be selling my entire NGC collection is anyone is interested (serious offers only) I'm getting away from them.|
