Is your coin featured (pictured) in PCGS's TrueView examples of any grade categories?

Hi guys,
Just wondering, NOT bragging, just wondering? if you guys have any coins shown as examples of the certain grades for that certain coin?
I myself, have at least 9! Maybe more? I haven't check lately. How 'bout you guys? I just find this AMAZING! To think? Out of all those other coins that
have the same grade I have but my coin, along with a couple others? Are my coins that presentable for PCGS? Lol. Remember guys, not bragging here, just curious? How 'bout you guys? Do you have any and about how many? Are they there permanently? Still pretty hard for me to believe this about my coins. Lol. This is really saying something when yours or my coin is featured in PCGS'S certain grade category!
Here are several of mine . Thanks.

    Congratulations Joey.... I do not think any of my coins ever were selected. You do pick out some very nice coins, so that probably accounts for so many being chosen. Keep on going, have fun... Cheers, RickO

    Your coins are not being manually selected to be one of the three coins displayed on each Coinfacts page. The three coins displayed are in the vast majority of instances simply the top three graded coins that have TrueViews, and in the instance of a tie of more than three coins in the same top grade, the last three to be submitted will display. This is an automatic process.

    If your coins are in the “View More Images” page, that’s even less selective. That just shows TrueViews for any graded coin with a TrueView that’s in a Set Registry. It can show multiple examples per grade.

    I got excited the first time I saw one of my coin trueviews on CoinFacts, but I ended up thinking it was just something similar to what Rexford just said.

    Well, mine was there for a time. Sic transit gloria.

    Joey,
    Nice display of your selected coins.
    Great toning.
    I do have coins that show up in the Coinfacts page. They are top graded coins as @Rexford has stated.
    Last count was around 12 or so.
    It is still pleasing to see your coin displayed whether or not it was selected manually or automatically.
    Here is one of mine:
    Top grade pop 9/0 1964-D QDO FS-105

    Do you remember about two or three years ago, on January 1, 201?, Coin Facts was washed clean of all of its TrueVeiw images? Perhaps it was for privacy reasons. It was slowly repopulated with only Registry set coins. I'm a very small fish in this big pond, but this is my experience: Until sometime in the last year, TrueViews would show up on Coin Facts only after I added it to my registry set inventory. My recent attempts to practice this theory have been fruitless. Here are three of mine that populated onto Coin Facts only after adding it to a registry set maybe two years ago.

    1807 Half Dollar VF20

    1798 Bust Dollar VG8

    I don’t know where you got this information, but I believe it is incorrect. By my experience, the coins selected for display on CoinFacts are generally attractive for the grade examples. I don’t believe it has anything to do with whether they currently reside in registry sets, nor is it related to how recently the coin was certified.

    My 1909-S VDB is on CoinFacts as an MS64 brown example. There are over 500 certified in that grade and color, and it was not recently certified.

    It would be interesting to hear PCGS’ take on this.

    The coins on CoinFacts are generally attractive because they’re generally high grade. Your MS64BN 1909-S is not on CoinFacts: https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1909-s-vdb-1c-bn/2426/64

    And yes, the coins in the “View more images” page are there if they are in registry sets. That was the solution PCGS came to instead of removing that page entirely due to collector privacy concerns.

    I think I would know if my own coin was displayed on PCGS Coin Facts.
    How do you explain this screenshot taken from the coinfacts website just now?

    That’s not the main CoinFacts page, that’s the “view more images” tab. Read my initial comment again.

    You stated that my coin was not on CoinFacts. That is not correct. You should be more careful with your statements.

    I just added a trueview coin to my set registry and put it in one of my sets. It’ll be interesting and cool to see if our host adds it to the more images tab. There is a 64 shown, and the one I added is a 66+. It is not a top pop, so it won’t make it to the front page. And maybe it won’t make the cut. If nothing else it gives me a good opportunity to go through and check out other nice graded and photo’d coins.

    Chance favors the prepared mind.

    A lot of my nicer nickels are plate coins, or have been in the past. Mostly Jeffersons a few Buffalo, and one Shield.
