PMG Grading On-site in Hong Kong in March 2019
Posted on 3/19/2019
Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) is now accepting submissions for on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong, China. The event will be held from March 18-30, 2019, at the offices of NGC Hong Kong Ltd., its Hong Kong affiliate.
Both vintage and modern notes from virtually every country will be accepted for this event. As an added benefit to its submitters, PMG will not charge any additional fees for the on-site grading. Please refer to the PMG Hong Kong Services and Fees chart for grading fees.
There was strong demand in 2018 as PMG, the world's largest third-party paper money grading service, offered on-site grading in Hong Kong for the first time. Due to the anticipated high demand for the March event, PMG expects to cut off submissions early.
The special event coincides with two major numismatic shows in Hong Kong: the Hong Kong International Coin Convention & Antique Watch Fair (HICC), held March 25-27 at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile, and the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS), held March 29-31 at the Mira Hotel.
Submitters are encouraged to submit as early as possible. PMG will update this article when it has cut off on-site grading submissions, and all submissions after that date (including for previously scheduled appointments) will only be accepted for PMG expedited grading (until Sunday, March 31).
Note: Due to overwhelming demand, PMG is no longer accepting submissions for on-site grading in Hong Kong as of March 20. All submissions for the on-site grading event received after March 20 will be sent to PMG Headquarters in the US for an expedited turnaround. The last day to submit for the expedited turnaround is March 31.
If your notes cannot be done on-site, you will be notified by PMG's Hong Kong office and your notes will be shipped to PMG's headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, USA, for an expedited turnaround.
If you would like your notes to be included in the on-site grading event, you must write "March On-site Grading" on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form. If you would prefer that your notes be graded by PMG in the US, you can request "March Expedited Grading Special" on the PMG Hong Kong Submission Form to have them shipped to PMG in the US for the expedited turnaround. For submissions that cannot be done on-site, the estimated turnaround time is three weeks (not including shipping time).
Note: The turnaround time is approximate and not guaranteed. Submissions will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis and, in the event of extremely high demand, later submissions may require a longer turnaround time.
PMG Collectors members (Associate and higher) and PMG Authorized Dealers can make an appointment to submit at PMG's Hong Kong office. Not a member? Learn how to join here.
Founded in 2005, PMG is the world’s leading and largest third-party paper money grading service with more than 3,500,000 notes certified, more than half of them from China. Every note that PMG certifies is backed by its comprehensive guarantee of grade and authenticity. The PMG Guarantee, combined with the accuracy, consistency and integrity of the PMG grading team, results in higher prices realized and greater liquidity for PMG-certified notes.
PMG will endeavor to complete all submissions at the earliest possible date. Turnaround times depend on the volume and type of submissions received, however, and PMG therefore cannot guarantee the turnaround time.
