NGC, NCS and PMG at Two Hong Kong, China Shows in April
Posted on 3/15/2018
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®), Numismatic Conservation Services® (NCS®) and Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) will attend the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) at The Mira Hotel and the Hong Kong International Coin Convention (HICC) at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, both held April 6-8, 2018, in Hong Kong, China.
The companies will offer the following services in conjunction with these shows:
PMG On-site Grading
Note: Due to overwhelming demand, PMG is no longer accepting submissions for on-site grading in Hong Kong, China. All HKCS and HICC submissions received as of this date will be sent to PMG Headquarters in the US for an expedited turnaround.
PMG is performing on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong, China through April 7, 2018. This is the first time PMG has offered on-site grading in Hong Kong, China. Space is limited, and PMG expects it will have to cut off on-site submissions early due to high demand. On-site grading submissions will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you would like your notes to be included in the on-site grading event, you must write "On-site Grading" on the PMG Hong Kong (China) Submission Form. For submissions that cannot be done on-site, the estimated turnaround time is three weeks (not including shipping time).

Submit for NGC grading, NCS conservation and PMG expedited grading at booths E5-E7 at the HKCS and booths 205-206 at the HICC.
All submissions received by NGC, NCS and PMG are shipped with insurance to the companies’ headquarters in the US for grading and, if requested, conservation. After grading, coins and notes are shipped with insurance to the companies’ Hong Kong office for pickup in China. All submissions must be picked up at the Hong Kong office in China.
PMG submissions will receive an expedited turnaround time of three weeks (not including shipping time). Submitters can also choose to have their notes graded by PMG on-site in Hong Kong, China, space permitted (see details above).
You must be a paid NGC or PMG Collector member or Authorized Dealer to submit to NGC, NCS and PMG. Elite Collector members receive a 10% discount on conservation and grading. Not a member? Join now!
Representatives from NGC, NCS and PMG will also be available to answer questions and explain the benefits of NGC, NCS and PMG.
The following services will be offered only at the HKCS:
David J. Camire, NCS President and NGC Finalizer, will be conducting free evaluations of coins. Evaluations will be provided 10:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:00 on April 6, and 10:00 to 12:00 and 15:30 to 17:00 April 7.
Rick Stelzer, a PMG Grading Consultant, will be conducting free evaluations of paper money. Evaluations will be provided 10:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:00, April 6 and April 7.
To ensure that we help as many people as possible, there is a limit of 10 coins or notes per person for the free evaluations. Evaluations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Note: Because evaluations are performed in a show environment, as opposed to our standard grading environment (with proper lighting conditions and facilities), all opinions should be used only as a guide. The grading opinion may change after the coins or notes are submitted and evaluated at our office.
Presentation by NGC and PMG Experts
A free presentation titled "NGC Grading, NCS Conservation and PMG Grading" will be offered by David J. Camire, NCS President and NGC Finalizer, and Adam Howerton, PMG Finalizer, on April 7 from 13:30 to 15:00. Camire and Howerton will explain the services and benefits of NGC, NCS and PMG in a comprehensive seminar with helpful information for collectors and dealers of all experience levels.
David J. Camire specializes in modern Chinese coins and is considered an authority on mint errors. Before joining NGC in 1999, David was a numismatist with one of the largest coin companies. He is the co-author of "100 Greatest U.S. Error Coins."
Adam Howerton is one of the most senior members of PMG's paper money grading team. Before joining PMG in 2011, Adam was a graduate and research assistant at the University of South Florida in Tampa, where he completed a master's degrees in US cultural history.
