CrossOver

If you would like the note in a PCGS-branded holder certified by PMG regardless of the PMG grade that it will receive, write CROSS AT ANY GRADE in bold letters on the PMG Submission Form. PMG’s grading fees will be discounted by 20% for CrossOver submissions designated as “CROSS AT ANY GRADE.”
