The 2002 PCGS Set Registry Awards winners were announced and are now posted on the Awards page. Click here to read the results. Congratulations to all award winners and Hall of Fame inductees.
Last week the preview for the Walking Liberty Half dollars weighting was posted on the Set Registry News Page. Previews of proposed weighting are posted for at least a week prior to actually making the changes. This is allowing registrants time to review the changes and submit feedback. Last Friday, the weighting for the Franklin Half dollars went live. This week the Jefferson nickel weighting will go live. Indian cents and Proof Sets 1936-2001 are coming up in the weighting queue. Your opinion counts, so please let us hear from you before we add weighting to the sets.
Fun, informative, and sometimes controversial, the PCGS Set Registry Messageboard remains the number one coin forum on the Internet.

Question: How can one tell the difference between 1965/1966 and 1967 SMS Jefferson nickels and the regular issue of the same dates?
Answer: The SMS issues will have a Proof-like finish. The deepest SMS coins will look just like Proofs.
