PCGS Currency Adds New National Bank Note Set Registry Category
PCGS Currency Set Registry participants may now take part and compete in an all new National Bank Note category. To mark its debut, a 51-note small size U.S. National Bank Note set has been designed to represent one example from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
"The introduction of National Bank Note sets encourages National collectors to actively participate in the PCGS Currency Set Registry," says Andrew Shiva, an avid collector of National Bank Notes who was instrumental in designing and creating the new category. "This new set (and others on the way) will allow National collectors the opportunity to showcase their collections and compete against other collectors in their own specialized categories."
Shiva is working with Laura A. Kessler, Vice President of PCGS Currency, to design additional sets in the National Bank Note category. "The possibilities are almost limitless with National Bank Notes," states Jason W. Bradford, President of PCGS Currency and himself an avid collector of Nationals. "Sets can now be created based on states, cities, counties, design types, and even charter numbers, or any combination thereof. Future sets will include a state capital set (one note from each of the state capitals), an alphabet set (one note from a city beginning with each letter of the alphabet), a set including one note from each of the first 100 National Bank charters, and design type sets for each state. Advanced sets for specific state collections by charter number will follow."
