When viewing registry sets . . . . .

what does "upgraded" mean when there are no apparent changes to the set?

I like to view sets for a quick way to see if any new top pops were graded recently.

    Sometimes collectors will "Upgrade" a coin with a coin in the same grade, as not all coins are identical.

    Also happens when the point value changes. Like a pop 1/0 becomes a pop 2/0. No actual set changes, but the set points change.

    sometimes I think it is a 2017 which have not been officially counted as required yet.

    Gee, if a pop 1/0 becomes a 2/0...that sounds like a "downgrade" to me. I would hope PCGS would come up with something other than "upgrade" to describe this event.

    Perhaps "update" would be a better descriptor :smile:

    I don't think that the pop counts causes any change to the set as you look at it.

    It does affect the set's rating, however, because of the added bonus 1/0 gives the point score. So, they do a revised version which you can see on that "Revision History" accessed off of the set composite page.

    Yes, it would affect ratings, but would not cause a flag in the left hand column.

    I've actually downgraded certain coins in a Registry and have the label "Upgraded" show up.

    I think updated would be a better term.

    I believe they already have this feature.

    That's what I find funny about it also! Loose a POP 1 and your score drops but says it is upgraded!
