Earlier this year, NGC expanded its Star Designation to all grades of US coinage up to MS 69 and PF 69.
A coin with Star Designation is automatically assigned a Registry point premium in order to recognize its exceptional eye appeal for the grade. Prior to the expansion, the Star Designation was limited to coins grading between MS 63/PF 63 and MS 69/PF 69 and therefore we needed to create Registry scores for star designated coins with grades lower than 63. Today we will implement an update to the Registry that will include these scores.
As the result of some feedback and observations we also performed a general review of the points given to already registered star designated coins and found some anomalies. In the next week we will implement a recalculation of points assigned to already registered Star Designated coins to make the point premium for the designation more consistent across all grades.
Thanks as always for your participation in the NGC Registry.
