Why the inconsistency in using CAPS for coin labels?

Hi,

I have been wondering for a long time why this is, any explanations?

Using my submission for sample, line 64 and 65 is different than 66 and 67, even though both are New Zealand coins and of the same series. Another example set is line 73 and 76, both 2 Euro coins and properly titled, while line 70, 71, 72 and 75 are also 2 Euro coins in ALL CAPS.

Ponderingly yours,

Lawrence

Historically, NGC used all caps until fairly recently. Starting with the new coinage of 2018, all labels for this and later dates use mixed upper and lower case. Coins dated 2017 and earlier will continue the all-caps labels, even when submitted after that date.

Ah ha, got you on line 51, 2017 yet correctly capitalized :p

All good though :)

Hello, iIL Ominatus.

Beginning in 2018, all coin descriptions were created using upper/lower case. If there is a certified coin dated prior to 2018 with upper/lower case on the label, this means that a coin of that type was not submitted to our offices until 2018. Thank you and please let us know when we may assist next.

No worries, thanks for the explanation. Kudos to the NGC registry team, you have been very responsive in maintaining and expanding the NGC registry.
