Top pop bonus points are great for coins, but they should not apply to pop 1 labels in the Registry
Why does a pop 1 label that is graded 70 get a higher Registry rating than the other graded 70's with normal labels?
I can see them commanding higher prices, but they are not better coins.
To me this is a real problem as a Professional Coin Grading Service, the coins should be the most important. Labels are great and I fully support signed labels, special labels for a good cause, etc. Plenty of people like to collect various coin labels.
But in the Registry there should not be extra top pop points awarded to any 70 coin, just because it has a different, unobtainable label.
See below. Note how many collectors have all 70 coins, but the single piece of paper prevented them getting a blue icon.
Something to consider revising in 2021.
