Now that is a novel idea. Why not allow ICCS graded coins to be added to the canadian sets in the registry.
There is no question that ICCS is the foremost grader of canadian coins (in canada) and are almost as tight on grading as NGC or PCGS, if not tighter. And it would open up a wider venue for canadian sets by a large order of magnitude. True, it would impact NGC's and PCGS's business, no more crossovers, but think of the positive impact it would have on the collecting public. The number of collectors who posess ICCS coins and don't have the wherewithall to crossover, would now be able to put together Canadian sets for the registry, and show off their hard found prizes. Would this be in keeping with NGC's more democratic posture? I think that all would agree that NGC is not the eliteist organization that, the other unnamed registry appears to be. So what if the verification process would devolve into a honor system...we are all honorable collectors arn't we? THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HHUUUUMMMM
