PMG graded note concern about sealing

Good morning,

Thanks for your message.  What you are seeing is called the rainbow or prism effect, also known as Newton rings. There is no liquid present, or anything that can damage your note. This visual phenomenon occurs when light passes through plastics with different refractive indexes (how they bend light). It’s what you sometimes see on a smartphone screen protector, or on the edges of an LCD television screen. In our cases, it’s caused by the refractive qualities of the two layers of the holders being layer together and sealed.  

You are welcome to send the note back for a reholder but we cannot guarantee this phenomenon will not occur in a new holder.  Reholders are $12 per book. 

If you have any questions, please let us know.  Thank you!
