  2. We look forward to your requests for the PMG Registry! Please post any requests here. PMG certification numbers are always helpful!
  3. Hello and thank you for the inquiry. No changes are accepted after the cutoff date at 10 am EST. This includes transfers. The admin. team here will make sure any pending transfer requests in our queue are taken care off prior the cut off time. Please let us know when we may assist next with the PMG Registry.
  4. With the end of the Registry Set year, (Dec 6 I believe) when the sets should be finalized or updated for 2019. If a note is added to the set before the cut off date but was not released by the previous owner. But is released after the last day, will it be accepted. I know that PMG is very good about contacted the previous owners and releasing the note for the new owner, but it can take a couple of days. Question put another way: does a note have to be released before the cut off date or can it be submitted to one's set before the cut off date and accepted after the cutoff date. Thanks

  6. I've seen a video of someone using that same Graded Currency Album and it looked to me as if the large PMG note holder stuck out of the top insert by 1/4 inch. Am I wrong? Do they actually fit perfect using those sleeves?
  7. I currently have 9 PMG notes and looking to expand my collection. I like to keep consistent grades when collecting a series and most of my notes are Grade 40. The higher denominations in a series end up costing a small fortune when keeping with consistent grades. Is it a bad idea to have higher grade low denomination notes and having lower grade high denomination notes in the same series? Would it be a failed collection? Some of these notes I'm seeing are expensive and I'm wondering what the best solution should be to have a respectable collection.

For example, you might study chart patterns or use automated alerts and algorithms as prompts to trade. But, as useful as all of these tools are, it is important to remember that they are only tools, and must be employed wisely. Just as your satnav can occasionally direct you to drive into a deep torrent of water because it doesn't know the river has flooded, trading technology isn't something to follow blindly. You still need to keep your eyes open and react intelligently to the signs you see. Car So when using technology, such as charting software or other analysis tools, it's important that you understand the underlying concepts and the reasons behind what the charts are telling you. This will allow you to see the bigger picture and avoid unnecessary mistakes. Lack of record keeping Do you remember your first trade? What about the third, or the fifth? If you're new to trading, the details may still be clear in your memory. But in a few months' time will you still be able to describe each step and decision in detail? Unless you keep a trading log or diary, the chances are that this information will be lost. And if you can't remember what you did right, how can you replicate it? Similarly, if you don't know where you went wrong you could easily make the same mistakes again. Your trading diary will let you look back at your experiences with the value of hindsight and learn from them. So what should you record in it? Question Which of the following is NOT worth putting in your trading diary? A Why you decided to trade B What you were wearing at the time C Where you placed your stops or limits D How you felt at the time you opened and closed the trade Reveal answer Bad timing Timing is not only the art of good comedy - it's also central to good trading. In the same way that a stand-up artist needs to deliver the punchline at exactly the right moment, you need to time your entry and exit from a market perfectly to maximise any profit or minimise any loss. Timing mistakes are common among new traders. So how can you avoid them? Although getting your timing right isn't an exact science, there are a few tools that will help you to act at the right moment: Chart analysis will help you forecast potential scenarios by revealing market patterns A trading plan will help you to define your strategy, meaning you're more likely to avoid impulsive actions Stops and limits will allow you to go about your business without having to monitor the markets constantly summary Remember the limitations of software and use it intelligently Keep a trading diary and reflect on the strategies that have worked well (or not so well) Use tools such as charts, stops and limits to help you get your timing right when opening and closing positions
  10. Thank you for the feedback and interest, Maunish. Whether or not specimens are mainstreamed in with regular issue notes or treated separately in the PMG Registry is determined on a case-by-case basis by or senior team. If you need help finding placement for any of you PMG notes, please email your cert. numbers to [email protected] We are happy to assist.
  11. Hi, I would like to make attention that in some registry sets was seen that the slot of specimens are separate, but its not for all the sets.So my suggestion to make separate slot of specimens in all the registry sets so that the collector would be more motivate to collect specimens also. Best Regards Manish Mittal

    Wow, a hundred consecutive stars! There are some nice Dallas Fed Reserve Bank Notes collections competing and all denoms have Cashier (not blacked out) and Governor (with President blacked out). I guess Dallas ran their operation differently. By the way, I like the collage of different shifts of the overprinted bar showing the underlying engraving (of Cashier and President). I'm sure you're right about one generic front for both small size nationals and Fed Reserve Bank Notes--just needed to overprint correct titles of the signatories (and black out the extraneous titles found on small size nationals. So, now I have to change subject to nationals of course... Here's a Large size 1902 PB from the First NB of Fostoria, OH, Ch. #2831. It's rather scarce. Kelley's census includes bank officers for some banks with Ohio covered fairly well. Fostoria long time President (1883-1935) would have been Andrew Emerine except the VP signed. Cashier is R.S. Powley. The VP signing was common enough that the FNB stamped Vice Prest. above the blacked out Prest. Unfortunately, I can't make out the signature on my well used example. Two better examples of 1902 PBs are in Heritage's archives, but are signed by Prest. Emerine. Other notes I've seen will have a v or vice penned in front of Prest. This is the first instance I've found of a stamp applied locally by the bank similar to what was done on Fed Reserve Bank notes blotting out the incorrect title. This note (SN 11217 pp G) is in Kelley's census, so I guess I'm not the only one unable to decipher that signature.
  13. Nice article. Thanks! The Newton, MA note is in my 1902 Large Nationals type of Mass. set here: https://notes.www.collectors-society.com/registry/notes/SetGallery.aspx?PeopleSetID=18638&SelectedTab=Gallery and my Signature set of 1902 Nationals by Fr. # here: https://notes.www.collectors-society.com/registry/notes/ViewPersonalCollection.aspx?UserCollectionID=1070&Tab=list I'm still looking for a Jones-Woods in Large. That $10 Dunbar NB in 66EPQ is a Top Pop. PMG only graded 8 Fr. 637s with the next closest a 65EPQ. Thanks for sharing!!

  16. Hey ddr70, I was checking out your nice Large Nationals and noticed your Newton, Mass note. It has the rare Woods-Tate signature combo. Attached is New York Dunbar of the same ilk. You ay be aware but Peter Huntoon wrote a nice article in the April 2019 Bank Note Reporter about the rarity of the combo. Attached is also a .jpg of the article and the banks that issued such notes.

    The New York FRBN's shown above have "Deputy Governor" on the left of the note but observe the Dallas FRBN I posted. It still says "Cashier" Was Harris the Deputy Governor of the Dallas Fed or a cashier!!!!!???? You have opened a Pandora's Box!!

    Actually, if you see the left side of the note, the black strip is intended to cover the word "Cashier"." Perhas the plates were originally intended for NBN's and then were adapted for FRBN's? This must be known within the hobby. Great mystery!!

    Once again, my compliments to your keen eye. The strip appears on all small FRBNs. As you can see, it is designed to block out the word "President." Whether that was a mistake in the plates, I don't know but it is certainly interesting. Perhaps the engraver mistakenly put "President" instead of "Governor" ?? I don't know but it is certainly interesting. It remind me of the black strip seen on Fr-1225's. Let us know if you find out why!

    Kelley lists two $10s and three $20s as far as type 2's for Ch. 3906 (not including your SN A001908). Best Ty. 2 $10 was VF-XF and Ty. 1's out number 2's by about 3:1. Not sure if T&P has more listed but certainly a great find (assuming she doesn't have SN 1909-2009 stashed away in the back) ! Appears to be a single bank town and a County (Fayette) with only 4 National Banks (good luck finding the FNB of Flatonia $50 Brown Back)! On the FRB of Dallas, any idea why the black bar to the right of Governor? Maybe that's common as I don't look at the FRBs much. [yes, appears to be part of the Fed Reserve letter printing, but why?]
  22. I agree that if you have some of the traveler's checks that are pristine and not stamped then those are truly a rarity in the market. You're lucky to have gotten the chance to get them yourself back in the day.
  23. I was in Harare during the initial phase of the inflationary period on a number of occasions. When I went to the Reserve Bank for Traveler Cheques, it was already problematic to obtain the lower denomination examples. Just obtained around five of the Z$1000 and multiples of 10 of everything else up to the Z$100,000. The reason the issuing stopped because these notes could - of course - only be used once. It took several years for quantities of Traveler cheques to reach the market. In my experience via eBay but also probably via some of the wholesalers at the numismatic shows. Of course prices crashed for the series incl. the Z$1000 note. However, what I noticed is that the Traveler cheques hitting the market were all redeemed ie they had a dated stamp with the date of redemption as well as signatures of the people that bought and then redeemed the notes. On the other hand, I made sure that I did not sign the notes when I bought them even though urged to do so by the bank staff of RBZ at the time. They are also not bank stamped, of course. Except for the examples I mostly sold into the South African numismatic market at the time and a couple of others spread to Zim fanatics around the globe, I haven't seen any re-enter the market. I only have three examples of the Zim$1000 note that I have kept for nostalgic reasons and are not for sale. In stock I have some of the earlier 5000, 10000 & 20000 Z$ early bearer cheques left for sale.
  24. Good morning, Yes, the old information should be removed. I am checking with our IT department on this issue to get this resolved for you. Thanks!
  25. I sent in a stack of PMG notes for a new holder. I assumed PMG would keep the same Cert Number for the new label. I found PMG assigned new Cert Numbers to the notes upon return. When I cross referenced the notes I found the previous Cert Number were not voided. If PMG is going to assign a new Cert Number why would you not void the previously assigned Cert Number? Can you clarify this? Old Cert# 1537883-038 New Cert# 8065865-020 Thank you,

    This little old lady always seems to have some nice stuff. I love being able to locate good stuff that is ungraded and has potential. I was looking through her rotation case and found this Dallas FRBN. We started talking and she pulled out of her special drawer 100 star notes and a local Type 2 NBN, I was thrilled. When I bought the 100 consecutive star notes ($800) she gave me a good deal on the FRBN ($32) and the LaGrange note ($250). I sent them in promptly for grading.
  27. I think that the way you spend and increase money brings some significance. For example, I like to play poker in online casino Nightrush and thanks to my game I often multiply my money. So far, apart from poker, I have not tried to play something, but the site has a huge selection of games.
  28. Okay. I'll just go that route then. Thank you!
  29. Go to PMG Services & Fees on pmgnotes.com and scroll down to crossover. It’s $10 if pmg decides the note will not cross at same grade given by PCGS and returns as is. Cross at any grade receives a 20% discount off the tier selected.
