Can PCGS include an explanation of what changes were made when the composition changes?

I often see in my "activity" that a set has gone up or down because of "set composition was changed." Why doesn't PCGS explain what the changes it made?

    Don't hold Your breath for a PCGS response here - it's unlikely to happen

    I have asked them the same thing - "that's how it's always been done and it will stay that way" was the answer

    Pretty sure it shows that whenever a member upgrades or adds a new coin to his set. Now whenever someone adds a new top pop coin all those other sets get adjusted but you can not see which coin was down graded in there set but show composition was changed.....Always been that way and would be nice if pcgs could show which coin lost points in that persons set.

    Or maybe your saying that pcgs is changing the requirements on a set which means they added a new coin or variety to that set? I just looked and it shows updated when a set get a bump up or down.

    I will not hold my breath...

  • I've asked that question of PCGS also. I would also like to be enlightened as to what was wrong with a coin to get a "details or not gradable" grade, sometimes it seems very subjective. I do agree with RadioContestKing'e explanation. I will be asking the question again at the December 5th Las Vegas Show.

    Not sure if this fully addresses your question, but it might give some extra insights

    Although I'm curious if these shows give legitimate opportunities to chat one-on-one with some of the 'important' people... Probably be quicker than trying to call or email...

    Nothing new I'm afraid, no one I could speak to at the PCGS submission table had the expertise to answer the question.
