  1. Good morning, thanks for your message. This would be considered a Solid #1 but not a Super Solid. To qualify for Super Solid, the number in the prefix would also have to be a 1. Thanks!
  2. Hello, if you feel that any note has been mislabeled, you are welcome to send it back in for our graders to review and if there was an error, we would certainly correct that at no charge but we will have to review them before making any determination. Thanks!
  3. Hello, the star designation is given to notes with exceptional eye appeal. The particular variety of the note would not play into that determination. You can find more information about the star designation here: https://www.pmgnotes.com/paper-money-grading/grading-scale/ If you feel that any note was mislabeled, you are welcome to send it back for a review but our graders are very familiar with these notes and what to look for in determining light and dark varieties. Thank you!
  4. Hi, thanks for your message. Yes, some carriers will not ship to a PO Box and you will need our street address. We can provide that to anyone upon request. You can reach our customer service department at 877-764-5570 or by email at serv[email protected] Thank you!
  5. Hello, thanks for your message. They are two different varieties in the Pick book, which is the main resource book we use for World notes. You can check that resource for any other differences but yes, in this case, the main difference would be darkness of the ink on the note. Thanks!
  6. Yes, the number on the submission form. Thanks,
  7. Hello, your discounts and member credits will be applied when your order is received here in the office before you are charged for anything. You won't see it listed on the submission form but it will be deducted before any charges are made on your order. You can check the "ship with" box on your form and write the other invoice numbers on there and we will tag them to ship back together in our system and we will send them back together in one box. Thanks!
  8. Hi, thanks for your message. If you can advise what country you are referring to I can check with our research department for more information for you. Thanks,
  9. Good afternoon, Thanks for your message. Yes, we can grade a note with a pen mark like that but it would possibly effect the grade and may result in a notation on the label. Thanks!
  10. Good afternoon, Thanks for your message. That's a great idea and I will pass your suggestion on to our management team! We appreciate your feedback! Thank you,
  11. Hello, thanks for your message. What you are seeing is called the rainbow or prism effect, also known as Newton rings. There is no liquid present, or anything that can damage your note. This visual phenomenon occurs when light passes through plastics with different refractive indexes (how they bend light). It’s what you sometimes see on a smartphone screen protector, or on the edges of an LCD television screen. We do try to minimize them as much as we can, however, it is difficult to avoid them completely. A reholder is an option, but there is no guarantee that the new holder will not also h
  12. Good morning, Thanks for your message. The holder can certainly melt and/or warp if exposed to high temperatures. Warping of the holder can happen even just being left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. We do not have a specific melting temperature we could provide to you, however. We can only advise to keep your notes in as much of a climate and temperature controlled environment you can. A fireproof safe would certainly provide some protection, but we could not say that no damage would occur to your notes, if they were in an actual fire in that case. If you ha
  13. Good afternoon, thanks for your message. An "As Made Inclusion" is defined as some sort of particle or particles inside the paper itself that was done during the paper making process. These particles are actually inside the note itself. We put this as a way to identify that these particles, which may be visible, are not damage done to the note, but rather something that occurred in the actual note making process. If you have any other questions, please let us know. Thank you!
  14. Good morning, If you are an authorized PMG dealer then you can access the API through your dealer portal by signing into your dealer account and going down to Dealer Tools: Thank you!
  15. Hello, we can't really advise you on pricing information. PMG is a grading company only and we do not provide values for any notes we grade. You could check online to see what similar notes are selling for to get an idea of price or you could check with a currency dealer in your area that might be able to give you a better idea of value. Thanks!
  16. Hello, for PMG the reference book we use is, Paper Money of the United States by Arthur and Ira Friedberg. The book you are referring to is not one of the reference books we use so, unfortunately, we could not provide you with any specific information about the book itself. Thanks,
  17. Hello, thanks for your message. I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to. Are you looking at something on our website? If you can clarify your question, I'll be happy to try and assist you. Thanks!
  18. Good morning, thanks for your message. 'Crisp uncirculated' in the context of this article is just a generalized term and is not one that is used specifically by PMG. At PMG we use four different terms to distinguish Uncirculated grades from one another. In ascending order, they are: Uncirculated (60-62) ,Choice Uncirculated (63-64), Gem Uncirculated (65-66), and Superb Gem Uncirculated (67+). 'Crisp Uncirculated' is a term we don't use and shouldn't be confused or used in place of one of the terms we use to describe the varying degrees of uncirculated notes. You can find our g
  19. We don't have any plans to add it automatically at the present time, however, you can request that on the label for an additional $8 variety fee. Thanks!
  20. Are you referring to the plate position? We do list that on the label automatically already. Thanks,
  21. Good morning, thanks for your message. If you are referring to notating a plate note on the label, we can do that currently if the customer requests that on their submission form and we can verify that it is, in fact, a plate note. It would be an $8 variety fee and generally appears on the back of the label. Thanks!
  22. For the security of our data, there are throttling rules in place that limit the number of lookups a single IP address can request in a specified time. These throttling rules apply to everyone and protect the site from being 'crawled' for data. When you come up against that message, just allow some time to pass and you will be able to continue with your lookups. If you have a membership, please make sure you are logged in before using the certification lookup tool as the restrictions are different for members versus those that are not logged in. Thanks!
  23. Hello, thanks for your message! Unfortunately, we cannot advise on values for notes. PMG is a grading company only. We grade and encapsulate notes that customers send to us but we do not buy, sell or value notes. If you would like more information on how to submit, you can find that on our website here: https://www.pmgnotes.com/services/Submitting.aspx Thank you!
  24. Hello, thanks for your message. When you refer to "scribbles" are you referring to the red and blue fibers in the paper? Those little lines are actual fibers in the paper and are not markings on the note. I don't see a stamp on the note but there is a plate position letter D on the front of the note both bottom right and top left. The Plate position denotes the position and plate on which it was printed. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you!
  25. Hi, I believe I answered your question on this over on our PMG Facebook page. Certain notes have multiple signature combinations available. If the combinations are listed in the Pick book, which is our main reference source, it will be listed on the label. However, if you have a note that is not listed, you can request the signature to be added for an additional variety fee of $8 per note. Thank you!
