Submit for PMG on-site grading in London

Representatives from NGC GmbH will accept PMG submissions for on-site grading in London on September 28-29. For PaperMoneyFair Maastricht submissions, please note "UK Grading Event" in bold letters on the NGC GmbH Submission Form for notes.

Submissions will be returned (again with insurance) to NGC GmbH in Munich once completed. Arrangements can be made with NGC GmbH to either pick up at its Munich office or have it ship the notes back to the submitter. NGC GmbH will endeavor to have all notes submitted for this event ready for pick up by Tuesday, October 15.

Free PMG Evaluations

Marian Meyer, a PMG Grading Finalizer, will be conducting free evaluations of paper money on September 28 (Hours: 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00). To ensure that we help as many people as possible, there is a limit of 10 notes per person for the free evaluations. Evaluations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: Because evaluations are performed in a show environment, as opposed to our standard grading environment (with proper lighting conditions and facilities), all opinions should be used only as a guide. The grading opinion may change after the notes are submitted and evaluated at our office.
