Registry Awards Question

I am looking at creating a new custom set this year. As I was reviewing the recent Registry awards, I noticed that there were no custom sets in the "Best Classic," "Best Modern," or "Best Presented" categories. 

Are custom sets not eligible for these categories, or were just none worthy? 

As a two-time "Best Presented" award winner, obviously a third time would be my goal ;)

Just wondering what the rules are, or if that had been considered.

I could definitely be wrong (and I'm sure NGC will offer the definitive answer tomorrow so maybe I should just pipe down lol) but I always thought that only competitive sets could compete for those 3 categories and custom sets could only go for some of the 5 custom set categories (obviously, customs that aren't ancient coins can't compete for the new-ish "Best Ancients Custom Set" award). I always thought that was why we / NGC used the term "competitive" to describe that group, and so this wouldn't represent anything new.

When you won the Best Presented twice did you win one or both with a Custom set?

Revenant, we sometimes change our NGC Registry annual award descriptions. For 2018, we actually offered additional awards over 2017. If you have a question about a certain award for a certain set, please send us the specific NGC Registry set type and user set name. You may reach us easily at registry@ngccoin.com. Thank you.

Thank you for the question, physics-fan3.14.

The parameters can change from year to year, but typically Best Classic and Best Modern are for competitive NGC Registry sets. Best Presented can apply to either Competitive or Custom sets.

If there are PCGS coins in a Custom set, particularly a World Coins custom set, are they ignored as they are in the US registry? Or will PCGS coins contribute to a custom set?

Hello, Physics Fan.

Thanks for the question. Any PCGS coins that have been grandfathered in to an existing NGC Registry set are still considered to be part of the set and therefore eligible for awards. Grandfathered PCGS coins are still considered for awards in US Competitive sets, as well.

Physics fan.  Do not expect anything reasonable or fair from NGC.  The whole idea of "grandfathering" some PCGS coins for some collections is TOTAL BS. Just as the explanation that PCGS has "lowered their standards."  Fairness is not a thing to NGC.  Only money.

I recommend you do as did - join the PCGS registry. It has better apps, better resources, and it's fair
