NGC knows one language, $.
If you want them to hear you take your business to PCGS.

I already have.
But PCGS is not recognizing "shift date" either.
They are still dreaming about "thick and thin" branches.  God knows where they came-up with that.... ????

We've had a long discussions (60+ postings) about varieties of the 1995 1/2 oz silver panda starting from here:
http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=3626.msg55775#msg55775

NGC now recognizes some of the varieties we discussed.

Can someone say what is the key of this 5Y 1995 Pandas?
My Research says all have nearly the same Prices.

1995 and 1998 seem to bring stronger prices and they have varieties that are sought after. Those are the two years I believe are the keys.

I have been working with a few people at NGC to get the S5Y Varieties recognized.

In September NGC has recognized the following S5Y 1995 coins
Large Date - Short Leaves,
Large Date - Long Leaves,
Small Date - Frosted Gap
Small Date - Mirrored Gap

NGC passed on declaring the 1995 Large date Type C as a variety. I have sent them additional documentation hoping they will reconsider their decision on Type C. Stay tuned.

I have submitted a request for the 1994 S5Y Frosted and Mirror Gap varieties and hope this will be accepted by NGC in coming months

I am currently working to prepare a request for 1996  and 1998 Varieties. Stay Tuned.

This process is  rather long and will take some time to get all of the S5Y Varieties recognized
