Free PMG Evaluations

Colin Blyth, a PMG Grader, will be conducting free evaluations of paper money on September 28 and 29, (Hours: 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00). To ensure that the expert can help as many people as possible, there is a limit of 10 notes per person for the free evaluations. Evaluations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: Because evaluations are performed in a show environment, as opposed to the standard grading environment (with proper lighting conditions and facilities), all opinions should be used only as a guide. The grading opinion may change after the notes are submitted and evaluated at the PMG office.


To submit directly for PMG services, you must be a paid member of NGC GmbH. To learn more, please visit the PMG website. You must use the PMG Europe Submission Form in Euros.

NGC GmbH now conducts business in Euros, so submitters will need to use the latest submission forms, available under your login. Please note that these new forms also have the German value-added tax included in the price (charged only when applicable).

You can learn more about the PaperMoneyFair in Maastricht on the event website.

There is additional information about a membership available on the NGC website.
