Problem with PCGS Registry SOLD INVENTORY (which also impacts Retired Registry Sets)

So I always thought that coins in your SOLD INVENTORY (as part of the PCGS Registry) would stay there forever, until you delete them. Apparently if someone resubmits an old coin you sold and the cert number changes, then then that old item in your SOLD INVENTORY disappears.

This also impacts any retired Registry Sets you might have -- with TrueView photos attached to that retired coin disappearing.

It would be nice if retiring a set shielded you from people upgrading coins you sold and giving them a new cert number. and just showed a snapshot of what your set looked like when it was retired.

In any case, since the set is retired, I don’t think there is any way to update the cert number or re-upload an old saved TrueView photo of that sold coin -- so no way to fix this.

I guess this policy means that every retired set will eventually get a lot of TrueView Photo holes in it and might be completely empty of photos one day. Since that is true, it makes me wonder what the point is of anyone retiring a set, since you will be losing lots of photos as the years go by.

And the whole point of maintaining a SOLD INVENTORY is to keep track of coins you once had, but sold, but that's not true anymore.

I have two "photo holes" so far in my retired lincoln set ... 1909-S VDB and 1927-D ... more to come I'm sure ... and with the current system there is no way to fix this shortcoming.
