Adding non-PCGS or Raw coins to a Showcase?

Why does PCGS restrict the available items for a showcase to only PCGS graded coins? These are non-competitive sets, what's the problem?

PCGS, listen up! #AllCoinsMatter

    @DIMEMAN What steps have you taken in your attempts to have this feature realized?

    I ran it by BJ a year or so ago and they said no. Maybe if you ask and they realize that more than one person wants it....they would rethink it.

    I thought that it was an allowable, but I just tried, and sure enough it is asking for a certification number.

    I have some coins I want to add to my graded Morgan type set showcase that, if I could have them slabbed by PCGS, I would, but due to the nature of the coin, they will never be allowed in a PCGS holder.

    One is a 1902-O Micro O VAM-3 in an old white ANACS slab. This coin, along with various other micro O varieties have been found to be "privately made"; a euphemism for counterfeit. I would like to add this coin along with a similarly graded example of an actual Micro O varieity - 1899-O VAM-6, also in an old white ANACS slab.

    Another coin I want to add to my showcase is the recently minted 1964-D fantasy over-strike created by Dan Carr.

    I think the digital album feature is a really great thing, I just wish I could put all my coins in it!

    Ok, I just emailed PCGS registry help. Let's cross our fingers!

    I also would like this feature. I have several ANACS and NGC coins I want to add to my showcase. Why allow us to put in inventory but not enter into non-competitive sets or showcases.

    Got a response from PCGS the other day, doesn't look good, at this time. :'( :

    Hello,

    I was trying to add non-PCGS coins to my showcase and can't. Is that a feature you plan on implementing in the near future? I understand not having raw or other TPG coins in the competitive registry sets, but, if you allow adding non-PCGS coins to my inventory, why not allow them to be added to my showcase, so I can make a digital album with them?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Non-PCGS graded coins are not eligible for inclusion in the competitive or Showcase sets. We allow members, like yourself, to add them to inventory so that one can view his/her entire inventory safely and in one place.

    At this time, we do not have any plans on allowing non-PCGS graded coins in the Showcase sets.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    Thank you.
