Best Strategy to get a PCGS Pedigree for Exonumia
I've been accumulating more top pop exonumia slabbed by ATS. It's impossible to avoid since they are, by far, the dominant TPG for exonumia right now, in sheer volume and to the point that people will cross from PCGS to ATS for their collections.
In order for PCGS to assign a pedigree to my collection, which approach is better:
- Cross to PCGS now without a pedigree and wait till I have enough they give me one?
- Build a top ranked registry set ATS and then cross to PCGS when they will give me a pedigree?
Initially, I was thinking of the first approach because the value of the CoinFacts listing of TrueViews overrode other considerations. However, now that CoinFacts has changed, that's less valuable to me and the pedigree is more the driving concern.
I'm torn because as much as I like TrueViews, they are less valuable to me without the CoinFacts listings, and it seems that a top pop ATS is more valuable for exonumia because, at the moment, more items and collectors are there.
