The point rating of the registry sets is a bit frustrating.
I collect Liberty Seated Dimes. My key coins in G-VG grades are worth about 45-60 points, where an 1853 dime EF with arrows is worth 120 points! I understand that PCGS is trying to level the playing field so all sets can be competitive, but this is a bit extreme to me.
I've formed a set where I've slabbed my keys first. I have many EF higher grade common date coins, but I don't want to slab anything worth under say $300.
