PMG Announces Winners of FUN Show Note-grading Contests

Both winners will receive top prizes worth $1,000.

Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) is pleased to announce the winners of our two note-grading contests held at the Tampa FUN show January 5 and 6, 2018. The winners are:

  • Dennis Hengeveld of VOC Numismatics in Sacramento, California.
  • Caleb Audette, age 12, from Haines City, Florida.

Contestants were given 10 minutes to grade 15 notes at the PMG booth without any outside assistance. The notes were a mix of grades and types, and included altered and not genuine notes. Both winners received the highest scores in their respective categories. Dennis received 31 out of 45 points, while Caleb received 25 out of 45 points.

The prize for the adult (age 18 and older) contest is $1,000 cash. The prize for the Young Numismatist (age 12-17) contest is $1,000 toward attending the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Summer Seminar June 16-28, 2018 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Congratulations to both winners! PMG would also like to thank everyone who participated and helped make this contest a success.
