PCGS Set Registry Everyman Collections
Professional Coin Grading Service has
established a new category in its popular PCGS
Set RegistrySM program, the "Everyman"
Collections. No coins graded higher than AU58
can be registered in this category.
"The PCGS Set Registry is home to many of the
finest collections ever assembled, but some
collectors have stayed away from 'the classics'
because the costs to acquire Mint State or Proof
specimens are prohibitive. So, we've created a
way for all levels of collectors, entry-level
through experienced, to enjoy the fun and
competitive nature of the Registry without
spending a fortune on Gem Mint State coins,"
said BJ Searls, Set Registry Manager.
"Major Registry categories will now have a
separate Everyman Collections listing where the
highest graded entry will be AU58. With Everyman
Collections there's a good chance your set will
rank in the top 20 on the first page, rather
than near the bottom of the third or fourth page
of that group."
The Everyman categories now available are:
This 1827 Capped Bust half dollar, graded PCGS
XF45, is one of the coins already registered in
an "Everyman" collection in the popular PCGS Set
Small Cents through 1958
Two Cents, Three Cents and Half Dimes
Nickels through 1938
Dimes through 1945
Quarter Dollars through 1964
Half Dollars through 1963
Silver Dollars through 1935
Non-modern gold coins
Searls also announced a convenient new feature
available as part of the "My Set Registry."
"Now you can submit all the changes to your sets
with one click rather going to each set to make
the changes. This is a time saver for collectors
who are especially active in the Registry," she
Established in 2001, the PCGS Set Registry now
hosts over 43,500 sets. In addition to every
major U.S. coin series, it offers categories for
Australian, Austrian, British, Canadian,
Mexican, Costa Rican, Chinese, Cuban, Dominican
Republic, Euro, German, Indian, Irish, Japanese,
New Zealand, Panamanian, Philippine Puerto
Rican, Russian, South African and Swiss coins.
Collectors compare their collections to other
current and all-time great collections. Sets are
ranked in the order of grade point average,
completion and overall rating.
