It's worth noting that there's no assessment in the quality of the comment description in the ranking. You can just put "PF 70" or even just "BLAH!" As long as there is some kind of text there it shows as having a comment and you get credit for it in the rankings.

Glad it helps / helped. When you're dealing with ranking / scoring algorithms, sometimes you just have to "check the boxes."

So now NGC accepts PCGS coins for US Sets but get penalized for using them? It used to be that you could win best in Category if you used some PCGS but then you probably wouldn't get NGC best in category, Now you can't even get to number 1 if you tie the top scores). That's very disappointing. I liked the old way much better and 99 percent of my coins are NGC. 

 

Check Silver Eagles, 1986-Date, Proofs, Including Varieties. I'm second because I registered two PCGS coins. Not cool lol

Would you be happier if they just lowered the points for PCGS coins by 5-10% as some have suggested so you get a lower score than the all NGC sets?

I've never heard that ludicrous suggestion until now. The old way: one award for Best in Category and another for NGC Best in Category served us well for many years. This new rule - if it's a new rule - is senseless. At a minimum this PCGS penalty should have been clearly stated at every possible chance, hell it should have been shouted from the rooftops. Rule changes cost some of us a lot of $$. No bueno!

Hello.

PCGS coins receive the same NGC Registry scores as NGC coins. If there is a tie in a set category, then the number of NGC coins does come into play: About the NGC Registry. Our programmers are looking into your rank in that set category. We will email you when we hear an answer. Thank you.
