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.
To ensure that we help as many people as possible, there is a limit of 10 coins and 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.
