    Hello, Roman, and thank you for the request.

    We will get the slot added. Please wait until you have this newly graded coin in hand before entering it into the NGC Registry. Our software needs to go through its weekly update program in order for your coin to be "live" in the NGC Registry. Thank you, and have a good day.

    Hi Ali,

    Its.been a few weeks now - are you able to add this slot?

    Thank you. Have a great day!

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. Hi. I recently certified a new (to NGC) variety of Mexico 8 Reales and would like it added to this complete varieties set: https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive/mexico/mexico/1954/ 

    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: https://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/5846756-005/58/

    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.

    1803-TH PCGS  XF40 - key date listed in Krause at $600 in XF (hahaha). While scarce, an original XF like this one is closer to the price i'm asking: **$220**

  7. 1815 Mexico 8 Reales in AU50 - $300

    Nice original surfaces

    1777 Mexico 8 Reales in AU53 (undergraded, in my opinion) - SOLD

    Scarcer assayer combination. Top pop at PCGS. Lovely color. The image was taken through glass to show color and the light came out too warm. In reality the obverse is closer to white.

     

    1777%20mexico%208r%20pcgs_original.jpg

     

    1819 Mexico 8 Reales in XF45 - $200

     

    Nice original coin. Great addition to a type set.

  8. When this happened to World Coins in 2012, I moved my entire collection to PCGS and haven't looked back since.

     

    What was the motivation for doing so? Was your collection a greater percentage of PCGS coins, or was it an economic based decision because of perceived increased value in the market, or just a protest against change, in that a free stuff registry model disappeared, i.e. a competitor decided to not support another competitor? Does PCGS allow NGC in their world coin registry?

     

    I had about 50% of my collection in PCGS plastic at the time of the announcement and had to make a decision whether I would stay with NGC or move to PCGS. The reason I decided to go with PCGS is due to being a big believer in customer experience as a differentiator between service providers. The way NGC approached the move and the overall lack of communication / acknowledgement of the additional pains their existing customers had to go through with regards to their collection choices (and associated financial impact) made me feel like NGC didn't really care about what I thought or felt as a consumer of their services. It was an unpleasant experience, especially since I spent my own time and helped initially craft a number of Colonial Mexico registry sets.
