More times than not, modern coins do not crossover.
With all the hype how PCGS coins are valued higher, it doesn't always mean their grades equal NGC. I have come to a conclusion that PCGS over grades most modern coins meant for circulation. Perhaps they don't value modern coins importance so they don't examine as carefully as they do with the Commemorative coins and the older classics. I usually buy a few PCGS modern coins hoping they crossover to NGC to keep my registry as close to NGC coins. I use to just submit them without any real examinations but after a few don't get cross overed...I started looking at all my modern PCGS coins.... I would say that 75% are a disappointment. I think the NGC registry needs to reevaluate the point system. I see that most SMS and business strikes in most sets are PCGS. They are cheaper to purchase because of the inflated population.
So...after stating that....How do we feel about this? Should PCGS modern coin points be reduced to reflect this? There really should be more incentive to have NGC modern coins in the registy sets here.
