Top pop = highest graded or tied for highest graded numerically by that service for that issue
Unfortunately, mint errors are not recorded in their Census. So, it remained unlisted for almost 7 years. Then, in 2012, the CPG added it to their list as FS-901 "Die Dent" which made it eligible for inclusion in the NGC Census. I resubmitted it to NGC for the designation, and it automatically became the "Top Pop" with no others. It has remained the only PF70UCAM for this variety graded by NGC. I have no idea if PCGS has graded any, but if they have, it would still be a Top Pop.
Don't forget mechanical errors and mistakes. Not all top pops are even legit.
I know quite a few types where the top pops are really restrikes that got erroneously slabbed as originals.
What does this have to do with being a Top Pop? The Census would still be updated...…....sooner or later!
This is another subject altogether.
Cracking it out would be the foolish thing to do in the first place unless you planned on submitting it to another service. In that case, it wouldn't change anything since each service maintains their own Census without regard for any other.
I also have a time with 21st Century acronyms, euphemisms and slang.
But at least now you have a place to look them up! Unfamiliar acronyms/euphemisms/slang were a lot more frustrating in pre-Internet days. Of course, you also got exposed to them a lot less frequently...
True..... I often have to call my son to decipher the text he just sent me.
That, and what's becoming a rather famous $5 bill, or at the very least mentioned a lot recently - will get ya cup of coffee
