PCGS coins in Puerto Rico set

I just received notice that PCGS coins are not allowed in Puerto Rico sets since PCGS coins are not admitted in "World" sets. I believe this is a mistake since PR is a US Territory. Besides, many of the existing PR sets already contain PCGS coins. C'mon guys.

Hello, Larry.

PCGS coins are allowed here: US Sets: American Overseas Territories sets. Can you please provide your certification number, so I may look into this? Thanks.

Hello, Larry.

Our apologies for any confusion. We did some research on why it was not accepted. Although PR is a US territory, the PR 1800's coinage is actually classified as "World" currency in our database because it is Spanish.

The NGC Registry programming does not have the functionality to accept a coin that is designated in our grading screen as "World." Any PCGS coins you may see now living in the PR NGC Registry set were grandfathered in from years back when we accepted PCGS coins. Thanks very much.
