Do you think Details/Genuine coins should get only 1 point?

As you probably know, "problem" coins that come back with a Details grade are only assigned a value of 1 point in the Set Registries. Do you think this is fair? An AU coin with a light cleaning gets 1/3 the points of an AG3 with almost no detail visible. And in some series (e.g., early copper) nearly every example is some shade of "Details".

Yes. Anything other than strictly original, unimpaired coins should get 1 point.

No. There should be another system to reduce points but not all the way to 1.

    In the set registry I believe a Details coin should receive half the value of a straight graded coin. With that being said I think PCGS should be more clear as to the specific grade of a Details coin. There is a huge difference between a MS62 details and MS66 details but PCGS doesn’t specify an exact numerical grade on a Details coin.

    Example: an AU50 details should receive 25 points on the set registry
