  1. I find it interesting that so many people at the top don't even bother to select NGC's photo to be included so people can view their set. It seems to me anybody could plug in the serial number of a coin for sale to boost their score. As long as it doesn't sell and even if it did sell and somebody didn't go to use it in a registry set, they can claim it's theirs without any proof and collect the rewards. Without any proof or custom photos. I'd hope this wasn't happening but I'd be shocked if it wasn't. Using your own photos should be a requirement at a minimum in my opinion. So that people don't waste their time going into look at "award winning" sets with ZERO photos and it might actually hold people a little more accountable. Might be a lot of surprises if this was ever implemented. I'm sure it'd be "the last straw" for some members.... who, "just don't have the ability or the time" of course.. Just a little hard to believe that somebody is holding all these 5 figure+ coins but they don't have a camera or a desire to showcase them.
  2. Ok, dumb question time. I just submitted my first PCGS slabbed coin for my registry set. I've never entered one before as I couldn't since I've been here. I noticed the field for entering the slab number would not take the entire number so I just entered the last set of numbers after the decimal point. Did I enter it correctly? I haven't seen this info posted anywhere. Submitted Dec. 26th and still waiting. Not a big deal but I'm curious if I did it right or if it will get rejected.
  3. Was just checking out the new beta version of the registry and noticed I had dropped 67 spots. Then I noticed that points for PCGS slabs are showing up again. Are we changing back to PCGS slabs counting again or is this a glitch? Just noticed in the classic view PCGS slabs were not showing up for points. The new format looks great btw. Very nice viewing full screen.
  4. Hello. I just submitted my first batch of coins to NGC. One was a crack out that I had in an album, that I had personally cracked out. I submitted it in a Saflip with the rest of them but I taped the label it had onto the plastic. It doesn't classify as a re-holder because it is raw and I didn't ask for a re-grade. Basically I'd be happy with the same grade on it but was wondering if they will be willing to look at the label and compare to photos they have to verify it's the same and just re-use the grade and serial number? Or will it now be newly graded with a new number? Its a branch mint 20 cent so it was an effort by me to not screw up the census. Next question. Are registry points assigned to shipwreck coins with shipwreck affect designation. I've seen some I'd like to own regardless as a way to have them in conditions I likely otherwise wouldn't be able to afford, but just curious if they get points on the registry. Thanks.
