Cancelling a retired set

Hello,
Last year I retired a couple of sets because I thought that was what you needed to do in order to sell on a set. I was not aware that you could just delete the coins and set.
Is there a way to now delete, rather than retire a set? I ask because I have started to rebuild one set (I like a challenge!) and I cannot add a couple of coins to it that I held onto that did not sell. as they are tied up in the retired set!
There is probably an obvious answer, but I cannot find it!!
Thanks!

    If you retired the set you should be able to open it and remove the coins in it. That would make them available

    Thank you @alaura22 but I can’t seem to work this out! It doesn’t give me the same options to add or remove from a retired set as it does with an open set. I may be missing a key point here. Sorry about this and thanks for any help!

    I am based in London and so my coms with PCGS are generally always in writing.

    I will update once I get any response. NB The set registry team usually take about a week or so to respond to me.

    Thanks again for help. I have now had some excellent email support and help from PCGS (the wonderful Paulina). Thank you.

    I have the same problem with a retired set. Will be glad to hear what you find about pulling retired coins from a retired set.

    If you retired the set and inventory you can add the certs back in as if it were a new coin
    Then you will be able to see them in your inventory

    I was not able to do this myself. Seems only they can do this. Paulina unretired the set for me when I asked.
    If you email them, they are usually very quick with helping.

    Did you just try re-entering the cert #s?

    Just last week I retired a set and inventory, not what I wanted to do
    after I did it I went back and added all the cert numbers for the coins that were in that set. It retained all the infomation connected to the coin through the cert number, date when purchased, where I bought it, price, and the pics. It then became available in my inventory either in active inventory not assigned to matching sets OR coins that don't match my sets.
    You should be able to do this on your own
    Good luck
