One way of looking at the psa ultra sensative system is to consider it as pennies.
1.0 = 100 pennies or one dollar
.1 = 10 pennies or a dime
.01 = one penny or one cent
.04 is 4 pennies
.06 is 6 pennies
The supposed standard point for BCR is .2 or 20 pennies or 2 dimes
This helped me figure it out when I was first here and unfamiliar with the percentages.
