PCGS CURRENCY SET REGISTRYSM Hall of Fame
Jeff Smith (Stars & Stripes Collection)
Military Payment Certificates Complete Set
The PCGS Currency Set Registry Hall of Fame is reserved for those sets that exemplify the Set Registry concept. This is our first and only five-time winning set. Not surprisingly, Jeff took top honors again this year for his Military Certificate set, once more setting another record as well by having the only five-time winning set in the Military Certificate category. The “Stars & Stripes Collection” is 100% complete and upgrades led to an increase in the weighted GPA over last year- from 65.98 to 66.828. The collection includes many “top pop” notes and a number of rarities. We salute Jeff’s efforts for continually seeking to improve upon a very notable collection.
Small Size $5 Silver Certificate Type Set
For the first time ever, PCGS Currency is recognizing an outstanding set with entry in the Set Registry Hall of Fame. Kraig Tripp’s Small Size $5 Silver Certificate type set is virtually unbeatable, with every single note a “top pop” for its Friedberg number. It’s overall weighted grade point average of 70.077 is out of a theoretically possible 70.231. Mr. Tripp’s award-winning set has won past accolades in the Small Size category, and his domination of the $5 Silver Certificate categories is legendary—some of his other sets in this same exact category rank number 2, 3, and 5. The PCGS Currency Set Registry Hall of Fame is reserved for those sets that exemplify the Set Registry concept—the combination of completion and the highest grades possible, with the fun and competition that completing these sets engenders with all collectors.
