Contemporary counterfeits

On a recent Journal entry by FenntuckyMike 'I've Been Everywhere, Man! (Part 1)' there was a Ukraine Contemporary Counterfeit that was graded. I just wondered what PMG's rules were on grading contemporary counterfeits? and what the requirements were to demonstrate this status?

Many thanks

Good morning,

Thank you for your message.  PMG can grade contemporary counterfeits as long as the issued note is no longer redeemable by the bank. As a result, almost all of the contemporary counterfeits you see graded will be much older notes and not anything modern.  You can find out more about counterfeits here: The Progression of Counterfeiting Throughout US History | PMG (

Thank you!
