PMG Grading On-site in Hong Kong in June 2019
Posted on 4/16/2019
Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®) is now accepting submissions for on-site authentication, grading and encapsulation of paper money in Hong Kong. The event will be held from June 17-29, 2019, at the offices of NGC Hong Kong, Ltd., its Hong Kong affiliate.
On-site grading offers submitters the benefit of significantly faster turnaround times. Both vintage and modern notes from virtually every country are accepted. Please note that the additional $2 per note fee for on-site grading has been discontinued. See the PMG Hong Kong Services and Fees chart.
PMG began to offer regular on-site grading in Hong Kong in early 2018, and each event has seen exceptionally strong demand. Due to anticipated high demand for the June 2019 event, PMG expects to cutoff submissions early.
All submissions for PMG on-site grading should be made to NGC Hong Kong, Ltd., by Friday, June 14. 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, June 30).
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 "June 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 "June 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 Collector 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.
