World Notes Requiring Additional Research: People’s Republic of China notes dated 1948-51 require additional research for authentication and are not eligible for Standard, Economy or Bulk tiers. Submit these under the Express tier or higher. Please note, due to the additional research required, the turnaround times for these notes may be longer.

A $10 adjustment fee will be charged for submission forms that must be modified prior to processing. This includes forms with more than one tier listed and bumps in tier levels due to undervalued notes.

Note: Please limit notes to 50 per submission form. For Bulk Consecutive submissions please limit notes to 100 per form. Use multiple submission forms as needed.
