Patentsview Recently Issued Plant Patents

Below is what is returned from a get to the patents endpoint for recently issued plant patents:


In English it's asking for plant patents with a sort of patent_date (issue date) descending so the return will be the 25 (default return size) more recently issued plant patents in the patentsview database. Note that the uspto issues new patents every Tuesday but the patentsview database is only updated every quarter so so. Note these problem below: no uspcs (United States Patent Classification) are returned and no cpcs (Cooperative Patent Classification) are returned. Every plant patent should have one or more uspc classification and many plant patents have cpc assignments (see this page). It is true that utility patents stopped receiving uspc assignmments in 2015 but plant patents still receive them though the patentsview api does not return them.
