I have noticed that NGC registry lists the Lunar Fan set II with a 2012 in MS and in PF.
I have only seen the 2012 fan in PF.
Has anyone ever seen an MS?
It doesn't even exist in NGC Census.

That's what I thought
I sent them an email to have them correct their registry

I know that this is the easiest lunar set to complete.
But it seems to be the only complete PF70 in the NGC registry. 
There must be many more.

I thought I would post it and open the floor to any comments.



Did you collect these in less than 6 months??? Quite well done!
Would you mind sharing why you chose to collect the scallop?
And thanks for sharing btw.

I started with the scallops because I always start with the coins I like best.
It's always more of a pleasure collecting coins that please you
I managed to complete the set in about 3 months
But I am close to completing the Fan and Scallop 1 series as well
