I work as a cashier so I come across a lot of different kinds of money and change.. A lady came in with a paper food stamp lol I thought it was cool so I bought it from her. I wanted encased because it's something no one will ever see again. But I was unsure if they would grade something like that.

That is GREAT find in the wild, congrats on acquiring it.

I'm not sure if PMG will grade and holder it for you but you can ask in the ASK PMG section of the forum, they probably would. As far as preserving it, I would just stick it in a nice currency sleeve and/or album and hold on to it as is.

The lady said she had more but never came back. Great find indeed. It took over 20years to see this one. I don't know how many more I would come across.

All you need is the $1 & $5 to complete the set, you could probably pick up the other two denominations for $10 - $20 a piece in UNC condition. Or the whole set for around $45, uncirculated.

I'd say she has a good chance of them authenticating and grading it, since it is a serialized government issue.

But if she can get the set in uncirc for $45 I think I'd send in a nicer one to grade.

I think grading went out the door when they found out you can get these on ebay. I wonder what I would offer someone for something similar, a find in the wild, a note I wasn't familiar with (shrug) I may have offered face for it. Although now that I'm looking at it closer I see it's a 1992 series, I wonder if you can still use them?

Maybe that one in particular, but some of us enjoy grading / buying pregraded things you can have on eBay for $5-10. lol
