Steve in Tampa once posted this quote:

"Comparison is the thief of joy" - Theodore Roosevelt

But I had to look.

I was looking over my type set and I noticed that several posters had on average lower graded coins than me and still were higher on the registry. Looking around I noticed that a few coins had crazy points and barely cost anything.

The below bicentennial quarter is one of these. In MS 66 its only worth 169 points but in PF 69 its worth over 3000 points, considering that I paid only $5 less for the MS66, the point difference is pretty extreme. So for $20 I picked up the below and moved from 106 to 97 (was at 96, but went to 97 today)

I never understood the "formula" or lack thereof that NGC uses to calculate these. There are a couple like that in the BUFFALO set, but not as extreme. To hit over 3,000 points you're spending at least $1,000 per coin. Doesn't seem to be much (there is some) correlation between value or rarity vs. points awarded.

Never understood the points for that one. I also don't get why proofs are weighted higher than MS in general. A PR67 is probably a lot rarer than a MS67

There are a few others but nothing like 3000 point difference for $5. I doubt I'll buy the others as the end goal is 100% complete, the ranking is really meaningless to me.

I wasn't looking for this BUT my local coin shop called me and offered it to me at greysheet . I couldn't say no, and its a really nice coin! With this coin and the next one coming I'm at 94. My only concern so far are the draped bust large cent and Seated Liberty dollars. When it comes to those I may be looking at $400-$500 for the cent and $600 for the seated liberty, unless I can find a bargain those maybe last. But never less, here is Pretty Lady Walking in Sunshine in Mint State with just a hint of toning.
