  1. 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.
  2. Okay. I'll just go that route then. Thank you!
  3. They'll let you cross them I think, but I don't think they've ever guaranteed the same grade would be given.
  4. I was hoping PMG might consider adding a set / category for the Bond Notes issued by Zimbabwe in 2016. The series was cut short when the population essentially rejected them, so there's only 2 notes - a $2 and $5 (P-99 and P-100) - so it'd be a very short set, but I'm looking to expand my Zimbabwe collection to include one or two of these in the near future.
  5. A currency dealer I shop with frequently just did a "fall sale" - putting all PCGS Currency graded banknotes on sale for 30%. This has me wondering if the PCGS graded notes haven't been selling since the shutdown and their values really have taken a hit, even on the lower ends of the market - including the market for modern banknotes.
  6. Well, that has nothing to do with what I asked, but thanks for the first part responding to my question.
  7. I'll agree with you that it's embarrassing, but it's totally understandable - I could totally see that sneaking past someone considering I'm sure they're looking at a ton of those thing and just looking at each one a few seconds. It's very close - just not quite right. Go ahead and contact PMG if you haven't already. I can't speak for them but I wouldn't be surprised if they're willing to make it right given that it's their error.
  8. That's interesting / cool. I think this is the first year you'll have the cut-off and the announcement for PMG and NGC on the same days.
  9. Apparently this is the design they were considering. Strange that it wasn't going to have the modern security features like the colors even - or maybe this was a work in progress / incomplete design.
  10. Like Lance said, it's cool, but not cool enough to be valuable.
  11. Would a set of notes that is from a government that no longer exists or which the government has demonetized be considered "obsolete?" Or would a set of such notes still just be classed as "World" (Non-US) currency / sets? I'm mostly asking this in the context of signature sets in the registry, where-in you can choose "US," "World," "Obsolete," and some other options.
  12. Probably just used the snipping tool app, saved it and attached it to his post. Anyway... Great catch as he said. Unfortunately I'm not sure there's much PMG or you can do other than maybe notify eBay (and good luck with that). The bill isn't fake (we assume it's the real one taken from the holder). They took it out of the PMG holder and are no longer claiming it as PMG graded, or claiming the grade, or anything like that. If you called them out on it they'd probably say it was sold to them like that and claim that they had no knowledge of it being bleached (and how would you prove them wrong?).
  13. PMG has certified some 10 Million dollar Zimbabwean Bearer Checks as P-55a and P-55b. I can't find anything in my available references that explains what the difference is between the two. Most other PMG notes have some kind of notation on them which indicates why a note is the sub-type it is. For instance: P-5a will say "light brown back," where P-5b will say "dark brown back." I can't find anything like that on these notes. I know the 10,000 and 100,000 notes in the same series have a difference in the digit grouping that sets P-46a and P-48a apart from P-46b and P-48b, but that doesn't seem to impact P-55. Could someone explain what the difference is between these two types?
  14. I think you also have to consider the idea of Jackson on a "Federal Reserve Note" rather ironic given that he worked very hard to kill the Bank of the United States, hated the idea of a central bank, thought the national debt was a national curse and would have hated the Fed and the FRNs.

    I'm pretty sure you can block the user so you won't see it anymore. But the ones you're complaining about - they just spammed everywhere and they need to be banned IMO. It's obviously a spam account. Edited to add: They call it "Ignored users."
