What does "Previously Mounted, Annotation" mean?

5 posts in this topic

Thank you for your post. The term "previously mounted" means the note was previously mounted to something (card stock, album, etc.). The term "annotation" means a note of explanation or comment that has been added.


A “Net” graded note is one which has had an adverse occurrence after it was printed. PMG will specifically state the reason(s) why any note is “Net” graded. A few typical examples of why a note may be “Net” graded are tear, corner missing, repaired, washed, stained, ink or writing, and PVC damage. Only the Genuineness Guarantee portion of the PMG Guarantee applies to Notes given a “Net” grade by PMG.

Thank you.

I am fairly new to collecting currency. I try to purchase only notes that are third party graded because it takes the subjective opinion element out of the transaction. I can't get a straight answer on whether i should stay away from notes that have a "Net" connotation added to them. Does it change their value? If the note is graded a 64 Net, does that drop to value to a 63 or even a 60?

No. Net graded notes like net graded coins do not get counted in the census.


Sometimes the problem is too great for them to give the note a clean grade, too many pinholes, previously mounted, a tear or split, I have seen notes not get a "net" for those issues. It depends on the extent of the issue and whether the graders think it is bad enough.


Here is an example of a Fr.1176:




The consensus was with the show dealers that it had a faded obverse due to where it had been, perhaps it had been exposed to too much sunlight at one point.
