Paper Money Certification

Post by Dick Malisk » Thu, 30 Nov 1995 04:00:00



There are several organizations which will (for a fee) certify the state
of a coin; E.G. PCGS.  Are there such groups which will do the same for
currency?

As of right now there is no grade certification of paper money such as
PCGS, there was an attempt to do this about 5 years ago, the company was
called Hallmark grading service, which started out grading coins and
decided to get into slabbing paper money as well, but collectors and
dealers turned a cold shoulder to this idea and the grading service went
out of business shortly thereafter.  As paper money grows in popularity I
thing this idea will be revived sometime in the future, will it succeed a
second time? I don't know.  John S.
