So to let other collectors out there understand..... I'm not directly competing against other collectors. I'm just collecting!
NGC may have a competition annually.... and that's a good thing!!! But I'm trying to fill my slots when a group opens from my collection.
Good example is my British Virgin Islands coins. I have all the Pegasus $1 coins and won "Best In Category" for it last year..... but now I'm in 2nd place.... because someone got a better coin grade on a coin..... GOOD FOR YOU Shoedt1 "https://www.ngccoin.com/profile/484039/" for finding a better graded coin. I'm happy with the coin I got and can say I have that coin in my collection! Maybe someday I'll find a better one.... but not my priority.
Some people like to compete on this site and so do I..... but in a different way. Solomon Islands are going to have a different year for the $1 coin. I have the coins they need to complete the registry..... and more! Take a look at it now..... then come back this fall to see what is different! That's how I compete!! https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive/solomon-islands/solomon-islands/8028/
Just realize I love collecting coins..... love competing..... love introducing what is missing in these categories..... and just having fun!!
COLLECT ON GARTH!!!
