Just a thought on rankings

silver dollar


I do own the coins...but won't own the sets

after seeing my overall ranking drop by two places..461 to 463, I had a thought. I have over twenty high scoring coins that I could add to sets (single coin in most instances) having no intention to ever complete or even add to that paricular set. Just for the purpose of adding total points to my personal total and raising my standing in the overall rankings. Is this an action that would be legal? Ethical? Or even, nice? I would have to say, just what value is placed on the overall rankings, as opposed to the rankings of the individual sets? I personally lean towards the view that the overall ranking should posibly be considered irrelavant, as they indicate number of coins and not the relative level of completed or working sets. And while we all agree,(with one exception), that the idea of this space is to intereact with other collectors and showcase our personal sets, not to compete with each other, (the awards are just gravy),to see who has the most money and can buy the best set. As I said, these thoughts just came to me, as I sat here with way too much time on my hands. (recently retired and still waiting for completion of my new home). Anyone want to make some counter arguments?
