    Encourage set owners to picture their coins.
    Maybe a medal/award for 100% True-View?

    Have weights for types within type sets. Example: different weights for the 1854-D. 1854-O, or 1854 three dollar in gold type sets. That way the rarity of the coin would be considered in the type set instead of just the quality of the coin.

    Which is the more desirable type coin for $3

    PCGS could consider offering Advanced Type or Advanced Date Sets which would include all date and mintmark weightings for those collectors not financially ready to pursue full date and mintmark sets.

    I spend the majority of my forum time in the U.S. Coins and have only recently begun creating various sets and uploading certs and pictures. I like some aspects of the registry sets but I would recommend creating more customization into sets.

    1. Denomination by mint mark. For example and entire Seated Liberty Half Dollar set comprised of only San Francisco mint marks.
    2. Extending that further, denomination by mint mark that would allow me to assemble San Francisco mint mark half dollars across all half dollars; seated, barber, walking liberty, etc.
    3. A set comprised of all the modern reverse proofs.
    4. A set compromised of only burnished platinum eagles.
    5. A set compromised of only burnished gold eagles.
    6. A set compromised of only burnished silver eagles.
    7. Custom sets that would allow me to use other TPGS coins or even raw coins. Granted a set such wouldn't be eligible for registry competition but my favorite aspect of the registry sets is the digital album and seeing a completed set. Who knows, maybe create a hybrids set registry where you can use other TPGS for set competitions? I thought the showcases set would be the closest to this idea but it only allows PCGS items. I happen to like the coins I have in non-PCGS slabs and don't see a need to cross them over just to complete a set, and that's assuming they cross.

    I am still learning the set registry ins and outs so if what I have suggested is already an option please disregard.

    How do I turn off that blue, side menu bar that keeps popping up.
    It locks the screen until it refreshes and it's driving me nuts.
    Everything would be faster without it.

    Just realized. What is the “A” in PCGA in the OP title? Typo?

    Are you using the App, computer/laptop or accessing via a smart phone’s browser? Trying to find what you are talking about.

    If its the one with Achievements, Activity, Preferences, etc., I click the “X” button to close the menu. Using Chrome.

    Bug in registry and reported.

    FYI. There’s a bug when trying to access the “My Medals” from the dashboard. Receiving the, “Oops! Errors Happen.”

    Reported to “setregistry” and they have notified their IT.

    Just passing it along.

    They have Mint Mark sets now.

    Make it so videos can be posted for the individual coins

    Clean up the minor issues with the Lincoln series…for consistency mostly.

    The Lincoln variety sets have 2 1909 VDB Double dies. And for some reason the second is listed as a 1901 VDB.

    There is a real problem with the 1964 Special Mint set addition to the variety sets. I think most collectors can agree that it can be in the variety sets requiring proofs but for some strange reason its listed with the business strikes in the Lincoln variety series from 1909 to date with Proofs in the non-proof listings – while the other 3 SMS (65-67) cents are listed with the proofs.

    The 1964 SMS is not even listed in the 1909 to date proofs with varieties, or in the 1950 to date proofs with varieties.

    Yet the 1964 SMS in listed in the business strike variety sets for 1909 to present, 1959 to present and 1959 to 2008 even though no proofs are required in these sets.

    It should be listed ONLY in the variety sets that require PROOFS and not in sets that have only business strikes. (And next to the other 3 SMS coins).

    I would like to see one additional set added to the Lincoln series a 1909 – date that covers all the different finishes. Just one representative coin each so in other words – one Matte Proof Lincoln, a business strike wheat, a 36 satin, a Brilliant wheat proof, a 1943 steel, a business strike memorial, a brilliant memorial proof, a SMS, A Zincoln, a 2005 -2010 satin, recent reverse proof, etc. – you get the idea.

    Back in Sep 2017 PCGS had posted VideoView for comments. No idea what came of it.

    I would like the 1964 SMS taken out of the Roosie variety set also! It has no business in the MS sets!

    This thread has valid ideas, exactly how do these get tabled to PCGS or consideration? Are we simply waiting for a PCGS rep to read this thread or do such ideas require direct correspondence to another email/thread? If so, to whom?

  • WaterSportWaterSport Posts: 5,549 ✭✭✭✭

    Could use some more viewing from other sets/series collectors to add their comments. I can not believe other sets do not have issues.

    Hi Everybody!

    I recently took over the PCGS Set Registry after BJ Searls retired. I've been on the Registry team for a little over two months now, some of you may know me from my past ten years with PCGS in various roles. In the last two months, I've been learning a ton and I've been seeing room for improvement on the public facing and PCGS facing sides of the Set Registry. We've been doing a lot of "under the hood" enhancements and updates to better the user experience for the Registry in general.

    One thing we've added in the last few days is the Set Request feature on the left side panel of the Set Registry. In the past, if you wanted to submit a request to add a set composite to the Set Registry you had to email our Set Registry team then provide additional information once we replied to your email. Now you can send us a request via the online Set Request form. Its a really simple process and only requires a small amount of information for you to request a new composite be added. Please keep in mind that we have a huge number of U.S. set composites already within the Registry but we are still expanding our non-U.S. categories. Before you request a U.S. composite be added, take a look at the different U.S. composites that already exist, you may find the composite already in the Registry and you just hadn't seen it yet.

    If you have ideas, suggestions or general feedback for the PCGS Set Registry, feel free to post them on this thread. Our IT and development teams review the forums often and will definitely review this thread as time goes on. I will keep an eye on this thread as well and will take a look at what has been suggested so far.

    I won't say that we will do everything that is asked in this thread, but if a valid suggestion is brought up that we think will add value to the PCGS Set Registry and/or increase engagement, we will definitely take a look to see if the suggestion is something we can potentially implement.

    I'm very excited to be a part of the Set Registry team and I can't wait to continue to grow the awesome program you've all enjoyed for the last 18+ years.

    Feel free to email [email protected] with the subject line of "PCGS Set Registry Feedback" with your suggestions if you'd prefer to not post them on this thread.

    Happy collecting!

    The "What if" fearure on the app.

    On the old desktop version you used to be able to simply select a coin and a grade from a list to see how it affected your set.

    Now you need a cert number or bar scan a cert.

    I have to search for a slabbed example of what I'm curious about and borrow the cert number for a minute.

    Far less handy imho.
