Another Grading Company Comparison

Educating all on the difference between CGA and PMG

As the esteemed Matarcat says, treat CGA as ungraded when purchasing.Note, the even though PMG did not assign it "NET" another surprise was the note had been "Retouched", impossible for most to realize before sending in for grading.

That note was graded by the old CGA that was charged with over grading.  The current firm uses a Star or Diamond to distinguish between the new and old CGA.  I agree that note does not look like a 64 to me, I think a 55 is fair.  I would not trust CGA prior to 2009, i.e. ones without a Diamond or Star on them.
