Indian Head Cent Variety Category

How does one go about getting a new set type into the Registry?


It is frustrating that major Indian Head cent varieties, such as the 1888/7 and 1873 double liberty, cannot be showcased in the Registry. PCGS has a separate set type for IHC varieties, so collectors not interested in completing a variety set can still participate in a regular set registry.


An alternative would be to allow "optional" coins to be listed and described, but not assigned specfic ranking scores. This would be cool because collectors with unusual varieties, or duplicates, could include them in their registered set, yet not affect those who do not want to collect and register varieties. For example, one might have a 65RD as the "Registered" coin, but a killer 66RB that, although is not worth as many points, is a stunner that is worthy of a picture. Or, just an unusual cherry picker variety that people might be interested in. Having an "optional" section in any Registered set would be a very nice feature.


Thanks for listening!

There are many scarce varieties (i.e. 1845 O/horiz O, SL no drapery Halves that is listed by NGC as "FS-002.5" variety but not included in sets). These variety inclusions could be something to be considered in the future. However, most are very low populations.
