Hi Allan, 

A few years back NGC reversed its decision without warning. You can no longer add PCGS Coins to registry sets. 

You can add them to your inventory and to custom sets only.

What really baffles everyone is why they allow existing registry sets to keep PCGS coins. It is totally unfair to everyone else and they don’t care.

I am paying to have my PCGS coins Crossed Over to NGC. I have submitted 31 coins graded PR70DCAM to NGC with every expectation of getting 31 coins back graded PF70 UCAM. If I don't see all of them graded as expected I may just put an end to this registry set game.

Hi Joel, I wish you the best of luck of getting those crossed.  However, having tried to cross several coins in both directions myself, I believe that both NGC and PCGS try to make it a point to "prove" they are more conservative than the other by denying crossovers.  I will never try to do so again. If they do not cross, they WILL NOT tell you why, which is total BS; you paid the same as having it graded so you would expect to know why. They will just tell you that they have "different standards."  In the long run, it is cheaper and less aggravating to find the coin you want in the holder you want (unless your coins are very rare or very expensive), even if you have to buy it again and sell your others.  In my opinion, you must accept that fact if you wish be at peace with the hobby.  

I have never tried to cross PR70DCAM or PF70UC coins, so please take that into account. Will you please share your results when you get them?  

PCGS actually flaunts their low cross over rate on their web site (https://www.pcgs.com/Statistics/) currently at just 38%. I'm not sure if NGC does the same - I could not find it if it does.  If so, perhaps an admin may post a link?

Wow that is a lot of money, if I recall correctly PCGS has said in the past that they will not cross MS/PF70 coins at grade.  Something to do with an expensive coin that they had to eat once it was cracked out of the holder due to an issue.  I don't know if NGC has a similar policy or not, I hope not for you.  Honestly I think you would have been better off selling the ones you have and just buying new coins in the holder you want, but best of luck hope it works out in your favor.

Well,

 

I got results back on my first 15 PCGS coins I submitted for crossing. 8 of 15 coins crossed from PR70 DCAM to NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo. I guess from reading other posts that percentage might be pretty good. I'll update this post when I get the other results on the remaining 16 coins. One coin I am very hopeful for. I think NGC should just allow the PCGS coins to be added to registry sets rather than penalize us new collectors.
