Has anyone here experienced this with PMG ?

I've submitted all of my currencies for grading to PCGS. I recently joined PMG just to compare services, cost, accuracy, etc. Well, it's been 15 days since I've joined them and I haven't received anything from them. No instructions, submission form, nothing. I hope their submission timeline is acceptable, or I'll have to wait a year or longer to get my submissions back !!! :s

Any thoughts ?

Thanks !!! :)

    I didn’t get anything either, you get the submission forms online.

    They were fast on my standard submission, back to me ahead of schedule.

    call them up and ask about your membership...ask how long their voucher submissions will take...why ask the forum when you can get the most accurate answer with a 5 minute phone call to the source of your concern?

    You took the words right out of my mouth tomtom. Hey Timbk3, I thought you were strictly a coin guy?

  • You will like them, they are very good. All forms are available online and you can follow your submissions there too.

    I didn't get a voucher but credit on my account for future submissions. I love PMG's status page about how far your items have progressed - PCGS just seemed to be a black hole

    Here's a True Story, just for fun... a client happened upon an old Teller's Book, with some heavily foxed NH Bank Proof Obsoletes still pasted inside. These were just plain nastiness on India paper. I salvaged what I could; the foxing was so bad that a 25% bleach solution was ultimately used. The notes turned snow white, but the foxing "skeletons" had disappeared. I told the client to cross his fingers and send them in (nevermind to who). A YEAR later they came back (and that after several phone calls). They came back as REPRINTS. Thoroughly fed-up, I called the company and made my way to the President. Nicely, I asked how many people had looked at the notes for certification, and What.The.Hell. The President said that he thought that they were reproductions, even though no Genuine examples of the notes existed. I asked him "where are the plates?"-he didn't know. I told him that they were rescued from a Teller's Book (but not how). He asked if he could take them to the St. Louis Currency show, for opinions. The notes were sent back. A week after the show, I called the President. "Well", he said, "I convened an ad hoc Round Table of (names withheld to protect, something) with Tom and Q.D."-the only New England dealers. All the others said that they were reprints, except for Tom and Q.D., who unequivocally stated that they were Unique Proofs. The President told me that then that the discussion became protracted, until Q.D. told the President to tell (me) that he would pay XXXX/note. "So, why are we even having this discussion?" I asked him, and told him that he could send the notes right along and I would catch-up with Q.D. later. "So, I guess that you'll be changing the labels?" I asked. "Uh, no... they have to stay that way" he said. "We can't change our mind once the note(s) is/are certified." He was really 'hung-up' on the paper, as the notes looked brand new. I told him what I did to the notes. "Oh, THAT explains it! We (the non-New England Round table guys) had never seen paper like that before." Uh huh. True story.

    Cool story.

    Why did it take a year to have the note graded ? That’s not typical, regardless of the TPG.

    Hey Tim. Can you post pictures of the notes submitted? And when they return from grading? Many thanks.

  • mbwhizkid: It took a year because they had no idea about them, and put them on a "back burner", and pretty much forgot about them until we called

    Thanks Timbuk3. I'm not understanding why we need to go this direction. Why not post the notes on the forum here?
