First graded note! 1899 Silver Certificate

Picked this up the other day, it's my first graded note and it's a nice one! Paid about $150 for it. Not a bad price. Quick question however, I love PMG's newer holders and this one is somewhat beat up, lots of scratches. I don't think it'd be worth it to reholder it right now, but how could I go about maybe polishing the holder? If at all possible?

    Nice note,and great price as well.The best thing would be a re-holder.Short of that the only way I have found to help out a scratchy PMG holder is......WD-40. Spray a small amount onto a paper towel and gently buff it into the holder.Only use a tiny bit of WD-40 at first until you see the results.You need to fully buff it out until it has no oily feel.Once done,you should see some improvement.Remember....buff,buff,buff.

    Gorgeous note, great artwork!
    Looks so original and crisp. Keen eye on a choosing an XF note with PPQ - they can be so great yet priced within reach.

    Be careful, you may now want to buy more - LOL!!

    Looks like just a trifold away from Ch/Gem CU,
    very nice centering, there is lots to like about this note!

  • Here's mine in the same grade. Personally I'd just get it re-holdered. You got a great price on the note so even with the re-holdering fee you're still not going to lose money on the deal.

    I always like the black eagle note series...your note for a 45 looks beautiful.

    Spartcom5 - That's a great looking Black Eagle Note and great price that you picked it up for as well for being your very first graded note to buy. Great pick up!

    clarenze30 - that's a beautiful $5 dollar Chief Note! It has great eye appeal and an awesome serial number as well. Very nice! Would love to have one like it in my collection some day.
