    Typo - wrong block listed on holder.

    The serial number indicates it should be the 1935G “With Motto” .

    I watched this one on ebay last week.

    Oops !

    perhaps it is a "semi-repeater radar" ?

    How 'bout . . . "Bookends with radar insert" B)

    In the past few weeks PMG has:

    Forgot to label a Changeover pair in our submission even though we clearly described it as such on the submission form.

    Classified a $5 1934C SC PA block as a wide instead of a narrow even though we clearly wrote 'narrow face' on the submission form.

    They really need to do a better job at quality control. It's ridiculous.

    Mistakes are made and it’s unfortunate. Most can be corrected. I don’t know of any grading company completely void of mistakes. This photo was posted by @PCGS_SocialMedia a while back and I captured a screenshot before it was edited. It clearly says GEM UNC above the AU 55 grade. Oops

    That was unfortunately a photoshop error but no excuses. Definitely should have been caught before going to press. Besides that wasn't someone's submission note. That was just a media publication photo.

    Let's see you find an actual error on a PCGS Banknote real submission. I bet you can't because they have top notch quality control. I'm sure sooner or later a mistake will happen as nobody's perfect but not nearly to the extent of what PMG does.

    How about this one guys!

    PMG called this a mule when it was clearly a non mule. They got the back plate number entirely wrong.

    Oh come on - you have several thousand posts on the PMG sponsored forum and only 29 here.
    You really love PMG, admit it!

    HaHa...Larry has little tolerance for any of the 3-letter grading companies (CGA & PMG)

    Actually CGC wasn't bad. 😛
