For people who collect TPG lowballs, low grades command a premium. But it has to be really low.

As to why below G is not usually listed is simply most collectors are not interested in coins of that grade.

You should also keep in mind those price guides are usually for graded coins. Any coin that has not been graded is going to go for significantly less.

The bottom end is P (poor) 01, FA (Fair) 2 and AG 3. To answer the question, it really is entirely on you. Depending on the series, price guides may or may not have AG listed. If you figure half the value of a G4 then consider the coin and how it looks to you, then you decide. I have seen some absolutely lovely AG coins. Hell, my 1877 is an AG3 and I feel it is extremely nice for the grade. I paid almost what a G-4 is valued at. To me, it was absolutely worth what I paid.

It depends on you and the coin.

About half of good is a decent estimate. I was once presented with a raw Wreath cent in P-01, if that, really basal state at $375. Now a Wreath cent is $2,400 in Good and does have a bid of $1,300 in AG-03, so I figured About Fa-02 is $650 and P-01 would be about $325, so I passed, but a well known dealer bought it for $375 and is asking $450 for it. So, its a rule of thumb, but the ease of getting the coin in a higher grade and the popularity of the series also weighs of the multiplier. If I had used the AG/G ratio as the multiplier (0.54) instead of 0.50, I would have gotten $380 and probably would have bought it.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

I also think half of the G4 price for AG3 is a good rule of thumb. But only for coins with decent eye appeal.
Not quite a full rim is ok , missing some details is ok, but I want a full date, no major corrosion or scratches, or more wear than an AG3 should have

Since there is a G1 Poor, G2 Fair, G3 AG and a G4 Good, I would just divide the G4 value by 4 and then know about what each grade would be valued at.
