  1. Hi, Ali. Thank you - i followed the directions in the email. Regards, Roman.
  2. Hi Ali, Its.been a few weeks now - are you able to add this slot?
  3. Hi Ali E. Can you please add the following: Set: Charles IV, 8 Reales, Bust of Charles IV (1791-1808), Circulation Issue Set URL: New Coin Slot: 1796MO FM F/T My coin that qualifies for the slot: Thank you, Roman.
  4. I think you should definitely get it slabbed and attributed. Quite a Mint Error!
  5. Amazing - thank you! I'll get a few of my other varieties packaged-up for shipping.
  6. That's an odd decision. What makes this variety different from the other over-assayer in the set already? Is it possible to speak with a Senior World grader about this? I'm trying hard to find reasons to engage with the NGC registry again, but you folks are not making it easy for someone in my area of specialization.
  7. Thanks Ali E. Is there a list published somewhere of experts that are consulted? I remember providing feedback on the composition of the original Mexico portrait sets around 2008 when they were being built out, but have not been very active at NGC since. There are a handful of specialists in this area and would be great to know who is being consulted. For example, the reference I cited by Brad Yonaka is the most up-to-date view of all the varieties for the Mexico portrait series. Is Brad on the expert panel for NGC?
  8. Hi. I recently certified a new (to NGC) variety of Mexico 8 Reales and would like it added to this complete varieties set: This variety is well known to specialized collectors and has been documented in Brad Yonaka's recent book : "A Variety Guide to the silver and copper coinage of the mexico city mint 1772-1821" alongside with the varieties already present in the set. Here's the coin in question: Please let me know what steps I need to take to have this added, as the online "request to add a slot" resulted in this coin being added in a non-variety 1815 8 Reales slot. Thank you, Roman.
  9. Congrats to all who pushed to get the PCGS coins back into US competitive sets. Too bad world sets are still not allowing PCGS coins.
  10. Thought I was coming back, but with this change not applying to World Coin Sets - no reason to do so. Too bad.
  11. Most definitely a counterfeit. Design elements (portrait, reverse shield, legend) are not even close to the regal king punches used in Mexico. Might be a contemporary forgery, which would still have value to collectors.
  12. Thanks @Abuelo's Collection. I was very happy to add it to the collection. That 1800 is my favorite out of the recent additions.
