      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

  1. ah, they see reason. now somehow see if I can reinstate my account
  2. All sets and coins removed. How do I delete my profile? I want nothing more to do with your company. You took a lifelong hobby and destroyed it for me today. Be proud of yourself.
  3. I still think you're insufficiently_thoughtful_persons. The coin was released as part of a special mint set from the US Government . I'm done. I'm removing my set and cancelling after I post this.
  4. 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.
  5. I agree that this has become almost ridiculous about coins. It used to be, that you had the bullion and proof editions. Period. If you have a definite variety (95W, 06W, rev. pfs, etc.), it should have a slot. Bullion is bullion. I really don't care where it's minted.
  6. When was the 2013 SP Enhanced Finish Silver Eagle only from the West Point Mint Set removed? This is definitely a variety and part of the collection. I only figured this out by having to rearrange my boxes when NGC decided to release 2015 and 2016 eagles in 2017, and noticed I had 1 more coin than the total on the screen. This coin needs to be placed back in to the set listing.
  7. Is there a listing of score changes that occur in a particular registry set and why? I understand that scores change because the population of particular grades changes with newly graded coins. Just wondering if there is a particular list for the users to see .
  8. I realize that the engraving and press punch machinery have advanced technologically in the last 10 years. You state a minimum of 3 persons look at each coin to ascertain grade. My question is, How many graders are there and how many coins do they look at per hour? I notice that about 2-4 weeks after the coins are released, there are 1000's of coins available.
  9. In the Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Mint State and Proof (Incl. Varieties) set, NGC has the 2017W Proof eagle erroneously listed as 2017(W) struck at West Point PF when it should be correctly list as 2017W PF as the W is minted on this proof coin and not inferred.
  10. ALI, thanks for your info. to the others, I agree. I got started on the American Eagles in the late 90's, and have been stuck ever since. I just want to maintain my complete collection. I agree regular bullion coinage being "specialized" by where it was made is a way for NGC and others to make money. But the Collector's Society requires it, so what can I do?
  11. I understand that but when are they being released to the public and where are the census numbers?
  12. oops, should read "April 10, 2017 to April 16, 2017". sorry.
  13. I'm an avid fan of the American Silver Eagles. I take pride in maintaining a 100% NGC collection. I may not be the highest ranked but I have all of them, varieties included. I'm just wondering where, from April 10, 2017 to April 16, 2016, a mysterious 2016(S) Minted in San Francisco variety was added? I've never seen one listed for sale and there is no population report available. It's second quarter 2017, they didn't just mint them. Where's this mysterious coin? I notice there is now a spot for the 2017(S) Minted in San Francisco variety so I expect it will be issued sometime this year (but, why have a slot for a non-issued coin?) and will be on the look for it. The 2017S PF slot is now available as the coin was released recently and I already have my coin ordered for it. I missed out on the unlimited purchase quantity available from the mint because the big companies bought all of them in 2 minutes. I would welcome a reply from NGC as to how these mysterious slots came from.
  14. 4/10/17 I just saw on ebay the early listing on a 70 at the $200 mark. uh huh.
  15. I too am one that missed out on buying a set. Guess we will have to watch "The Coin Vault" and "Ebay" to get them when they hit the market.
