Apparent grades

2 posts in this topic

Ive seen PCGS have grades that say Apparent Fine 12 . Does PMG have grades like that that say Apparent? I know your company lists comments on the back for splitting and rips and such. Just wondered if your company does apparent grading or something similar to it

Very good question! Yes, PMG does have "Net Grades" which is similar to PCGS "Apparent Grades".


What is a "Net Grade"?


A "net graded" note is one which has had an adverse occurrence after it left the BEP. PMG understands that such a note can still be rare and valuable. Instead of returning it ungraded, PMG will holder and authenticate it as a "Net Graded". PMG will specifically state the reason(s) why any note is net graded. The PMG guarantee is not valid on any net graded note. Listed here are a few examples of why a note may be "net graded": tear, corner missing, repaired, re-embossed, washed, stained, ink or writing and PVC damage.
