NGC Registry Awards



Thank you NGC for selecting my 1908 USA/Philippines Proof Set for a "2012 Best Classic Set Award".

For the past several years much of my collecting efforts have focused on my Custom USA/Philippines Registry Sets. When NGC established a competitive category for 1908 USA/Philippines Proof Sets (in November 2012) I deleted my "Custom Set" in that category and set up a "Competitive" 1908 Proof Set.

While I am honored that NGC selected my 1908 Proof Set for a "2012 Best Classic Set Award" I feel somewhat ambivalent about the honor since this set is a definitely a "work in progress" and nowhere near the ultimate 1908 USA/Philippines Proof Set. Rest assured that I will be continually upgrading this set. In fact since the judging closed I have upgraded two of the coins in this set. I upgraded the 1908 Half Centavo from PF65 RD to a "Top Pop" PF67RB and the Fifty Centavos from PF62 to PF64. I also plan to upgrade the photos to high resolution "NGC Photo Proof" images.

If you haven't seen my 1908 Proof Set please take a look but be sure to check back periodically for upgrades.


The attached photo is a 1908 Half Centavo, PCGS PR67 RB. Combined NGC/PCGS population 3/0.
