About this set: Update 8/27/2015
PCGS listened to collectors and added a new column to the scoring registry. They now show the GPA before the top pop bonuses.
You can now see that this is is .03 higher than the second set. It is my opinion that both sets should get the number 1 set award. Bob's is higher using the top pop bonuses but mine is higher based on the coins grades.
CAC Complete Set!
This set is a major disappointment. A heart breaker.
Morgan's are my favorite. This set was number one of all time for two years. It beat Mr. Simpson's set which has FIVE PR69's. I was able to rank higher by having the best and highest graded DCAMS. In case you are not familiar with PCGS scoring, a DCAM gets two additional points. In MANY cases a lower graded DCAM is rarer than a regular coin in the next grade. So a PR67DCAM can be much rarer than some PR68's. A PR67DCAM used to have the same score as a PR69.
Early this year PCGS decided to give additional points to top pop coins and coins that are tied for the top pop. Mr. Simpson's score went from 68.42 to 69.18 without any of the coins being replaced/upgraded. It is now the top set even though the average grades of the coins are lower than mine. I have the utmost respect for Mr. Simpson and love the coins he buys and his sets. Bob, if you are reading this perhaps you would consider having PCGS remove the top pop extra points and competing with me on an even basis? If not, congratulations. I submit!
