    There are some amazing sets honored, and you could spend a very pleasant rainy weekend looking through all the amazing coins.

    I want to give a special callout to our friend @Lehigh96 for winning the Best Presented Set award (again ;) ). Congrats!

    I didn't recognize any of the other names as cointalk folks, but let us know if you were an honoree.

    @Lehigh96, the award is well earned. Pleasure to see the pics, and read the intro and descriptions of individual coins. Great to have a registry entry that is so educational. There are so many highly ranked sets where there are no pictures or descriptions at all. Your set is an exception ... by a mile. :)

    How does NGC (or someone at NGC) assign the number of points per coin? I assume grade plays a significant factor - but what about eye-pop, color, etc. (subjective factors). Thanks for any insight!

    Grade & designation only for type sets such as the 7070 or 7070+gold. It doesn’t matter if your silver coins are “white” or nicely toned. Star-coins earn some extra points. It may vary for other sets...

    E.g. scores for a Coronet 1C (1816-39):

    Here’s a great thread about a Coronet Cent and “type” vs. “date” scores:

    This is a little embarrassing but I didn't even know I won until I read this thread. Thank you to everyone for the kudos, I appreciate it!

    PS, hey NGC, how about sending me an e-mail or something next time.

    Congratulations. This sets a standard for not just acquiring, but deeply appreciating, an exceptional collection. And then sharing that appreciation to engage other collectors.

    Grade including pluses and stars is the only factor in awarding points to a coin. NGC uses a different approach than PCGS. NGC uses giant point tables that consider all possibilities (grade, pluses, stars, major varieties, color, etc.) for a given type, date and mint. PCGS uses the grade and a table of weights for year and mint for each coin type. They also add or subtract points for certain characteristics for some coin types.
