Why do low ball coins need to be assignable to a date to straight grade when mint errors don’t?

    Because you can't build a low ball registry set out of dateline coins.

    Also, error coins are "as struck" while the worn coins are not.

    It is also not 100% true. One year type coins can be graded without a date.
