Rare note, before and after PMG VF25 to PCGS VF35
I saw that this note that I had sent into PMG that graded as a VF25 had been treated and graded at PCGS as a VF35 with more problems noted: https://currency.ha.com/itm/gold-certificates/fr-1176-20-1882-gold-certificate-pcgs-apparent-very-fine-35/a/3561-22174.s?ic4=ListView-Thumbnail-071515
I bought it PMG called it "previously framed, pinholes" with the net grade.
In the same sale there was another note with less problems in a PMG VF25 holder: https://currency.ha.com/itm/gold-certificates/fr-1176-20-1882-gold-certificate-pmg-very-fine-25/a/3561-22175.s?ic4=ListView-Thumbnail-071515
Are collectors too "numbers bound"; ie they look at the numerical grade and do not examine the note with enough critical analysis?
