PMG Grading On-site in London in January 2019
Posted on 10/19/2018
Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) is pleased to announce that it will perform on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money at its newly opened London office in January 2019. This is the first time that PMG, a leading third-party paper money grading service, has offered on-site grading in Europe.
The PMG London on-site grading event will be held January 21-30, 2019, at the office of NGC International UK Ltd. (NGC UK), the United Kingdom-based affiliate of PMG. Vintage and modern notes from nearly all countries are eligible, and there are no additional fees for the on-site grading.
Founded in 2005, PMG provides an expert and impartial assessment of a banknote’s authenticity and grade. After grading, notes are encapsulated in PMG’s secure, tamper-evident holder, which is designed for long-term preservation and protection.
Every note that PMG certifies is backed by its comprehensive guarantee of authenticity and grade. The PMG Guarantee, combined with the accuracy, consistency and integrity of the PMG grading team, results in higher prices realized and greater liquidity for PMG-certified notes.
NGC UK accepts PMG submissions on a year-round basis for shipment (with insurance coverage) to PMG’s headquarters in the United States for authentication, grading and encapsulation. Once completed, the submissions are shipped back to NGC UK (again with insurance coverage) to be returned to the submitters.
On-site grading provides the additional benefit of a significantly faster turnaround time. These events will be held periodically at NGC UK’s office.
“We have been inundated with requests to offer PMG on-site grading in Europe and we are thrilled to now be able to offer these services to collectors and dealers in the region,” says Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of PMG. “We are extremely grateful for the warm welcome we have received in London as well as the rapidly growing demand for our services in Europe and other regions.”
