Now you can see and even show your PCGS Set Registry® coins handsomely displayed in a customized album anytime, 24 hours a day, even if your prized coins are stored in a far-away bank vault or elsewhere.

Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) has created the PCGS Digital Coin Album, a way for collectors to display and share their coin sets online in a beautiful format resembling a traditional coin album.  The new feature is free and easy to use.

“The PCGS Set Registry would not be possible without internet technology, and now we’ve used technology to take what we feel is the next giant step for PCGS Set Registry efficiency, fun, and enjoyment,” said BJ Searls, PCGS Set Registry and Special Projects Director.

“We’ve developed a way for you to create an elegant coin album which you can enjoy yourself or share with your friends anytime. You simply login to My Set Registry, visit one of your sets, and build the album with the images you have added to your set,” explained Searls.

You can choose from one of six different color palettes for each album and you can add your own set description to the cover.  Once you “publish” your album online, it is linked from your set in the Registry and can be downloaded and printed as a PDF file.  You can admire it anytime, anywhere online, and you can share it with other collectors on the PCGS Set Registry website and through other social media.

The easy to use online control panel lets you quickly create and customize your own PCGS Digital Coin Album using photos of your coins in the PCGS Set Registry®.  (Photo credit: PCGS.)

Searls and PCGS Co-Founder David Hall will present a brief seminar about the new PCGS Digital Coin Album feature at 2 pm on Friday, January 30, 2015, at the upcoming Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com).

“This new digital approach combines the way we all used to collect with albums to house and display our coins with the technology of today.  This dramatically changes the way you can enjoy and display your sets.  In fact, your kids might even like it!,” said Searls.

The PCGS Set Registry (www.pcgs.com/setregistry) was established in 2001 and now hosts nearly 73,000 sets.  For additional information about PCGS and its services and the new PCGS Digital Coin Album, visit www.PCGS.com or call PCGS Customer Service at (800) 447-8848.

(Long Beach, California) — Three numismatic national treasures from the eagerly-anticipated D. Brent Pogue Family Collection, the 1822 and 1854-S Half Eagles and the Dexter 1804 dollar, will make their West Coast debut at the Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com), January 29 – 31, 2015.

The historic coins will be among the PCGS-certified Pogue Family Collection items displayed by Stack’s Bowers Galleries at their booth (#502) during the three-day show.  Stack’s Bowers and Sotheby’s will jointly offer the collection in a series of auctions starting in May.

“The 1822 Capped Bust Half Eagle is one of the greatest numismatic treasures of the United States,” stated David Hall, Co-Founder of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com).

“United States Mint records indicate that 17,796 $5 gold coins were produced in 1822, but today only three survivors are known.  Two of them are part of National Numismatic Collection in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History,” explained PCGS President Don Willis.  “The Pogue coin is the finest of the three, and is graded PCGS Secure™ AU50.”

Legendary collector and Baltimore, Maryland banker and financier, Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. purchased the coin from dealer Abe Kosoff for $14,000 in 1945. Pogue bought it for $687,500 in 1982 at “The United States Gold Coin Collection” auction of Eliasberg coins conducted by Bowers and Merena (now Stack’s Bowers).

There also are only three known 1854-S Coronet Head Half Eagles, and one of them is part of the Smithsonian’s holdings.  The Pogue coin, graded PCGS Secure AU58+, also was formerly in the Eliasberg Collection.  Mint record indicate only 268 $5 gold coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1854.

Only eight examples of the Class I Lettered Edge Draped Bust 1804 dollars are known.  The Pogue family owns the Dexter Specimen, graded PCGS Secure PR65.

Ron Guth, President of PCGSCoinFacts.com (www.PCGScoinfacts.com) states: “The 1804 Silver Dollar is one of the rarest and most popular of all American coins, despite the fact that none were made until 1834 and several were even made many years after that!”

(Dallas, Texas) — Leaders of the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.com) say many of the 50 dealers participating in the upcoming PNG Dallas Rare Coin & Paper Money Show, February 26 – 28, 2015, will be offering free, informal appraisals of the public’s old coins and currency.

The three-day show will be in Hall C of the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center that is located at 1501 Gaylord Trail in the Dallas suburb of Grapevine, Texas.

“The Dallas show will be an opportunity for the public to learn the value of coins or currency they may have inherited.  They can find out what it is and what it is worth.  And collectors in the Southwest can meet and do business with many PNG member-dealers from around the country who usually do not attend the local Dallas area coin shows,” said PNG President Terry Hanlon, President of Dillon Gage Precious Metals in Addison, Texas.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions will conduct an auction of U.S. rare coins in conjunction with the show.

Admission is $10 for a three-day pass, however, free admission coupons are available online at www.pngdealers.org/images/COUPON.dls.pdf.

(Santa Ana, California) — Professional Coin Grading Service (www.pcgs.com) has graded the coins from the D.

Among the many highlights of Pogue Collection coins now certified by PCGS and scheduled for display at the January 2015 Long Beach Expo are:

New PCGS Set Registry® Feature Finds Coins Instantly For Users

The new PCGS Shop Button feature in the PCGS Set Registry® lets you instantly find coins for sale, such as in this example, an 1885 Indian Head cent graded PCGS MS65 or higher.

The new PCGS Shop Button feature in the PCGS Set Registry® lets you instantly find coins for sale, such as in this example, an 1885 Indian Head cent graded PCGS MS65 or higher.

(Orlando, Florida) — A powerful, new search tool, found exclusively within the PCGS Set Registry® (www.PCGS.com/SetRegistry), saves collectors considerable time when shopping for coins online.

The new “PCGS Shop Button” conveniently finds and displays nearly every PCGS coin currently offered online, whether at auction or in a fixed-price ecommerce listing. The collector can then easily click through to the listing site to research the coin further, bid on the coin, or complete the transaction.

“Collecting is competitive, especially on the Set Registry, and searching every conceivable venue for the coin you need before someone else finds it can be time consuming and hit-or-miss.  The PCGS Shop Button is here to solve the ‘searching’ problem by simultaneously exploring nearly all listings for the coins you need,” explained PCGS President, Don Willis.

Willis announced the new feature at the PCGS Set Registry luncheon on Friday, January 9, 2015, at the Florida United Numismatists convention in Orlando, Florida.

“Directly from the interface of the PCGS Set Registry, this new service searches major ecommerce sites, like eBay, Amazon, and Collectors Corner, as well as top auction sites, and virtually every ecommerce coin dealer site, to return the right PCGS-graded coins back to you,” Willis added.

“The PCGS Shop Button is an incredible search tool,” said PCGS Set Registry Director BJ Searls, “because it not only allows Set Registry users to easily find coins directly from the ‘My Set’ page, but it also provides a number of ways to filter results.”

Search results returned by the PCGS Shop Button can be narrowed by any of these parameters:

  • Search all listings, auction only, or “buy it now” only
  • Filter by a particular seller
  • Search by a minimum and maximum grade
  • Search by a minimum and maximum price
  • Search by all strikes, mint state (MS) only, proof (PR) only or Specimen (SP) only

An additional time-saving feature of the PCGS Shop Button is the ability to add coins to a ‘Watch List’ in order to quickly access saved results over multiple sessions.

The PCGS Shop Button is a free service available to all members of the PCGS Set Registry, the hobby’s first online tool for organizing and analyzing your PCGS coin collection.  To start your free Set Registry account, and access the Shop Button, visit www.PCGS.com/SetRegistry.

The PCGS Set Registry was established in 2001 and now hosts over 72,000 sets.  For additional information about Professional Coin Grading Service, visit http://www.PCGS.com or call PCGS Customer Service at (800) 447-8848.
