Owner's Description

I bought this note encapsulated from a service called CGC. It was 35PQ. His PQ was the equivalent of PPQ and EPQ for the two main services. I was eager, inexperienced and flush with cash. A year later, Ebay announced only PMG and PCGS were the services that would be recognized. I had this note regraded and you see the result. I e-mailed him and asked if he retouched the note. No response. In retrospect, why a grader would alo be buying and selling notes is laughable. But he wrote a book on grading, he bragged he was much more conservative than PMG and PCGS. Just suckered me. Another note he sold me was down graded by PMG and went from PQ to NET. Track and Price showed the note had been graded 30PPQ from PCGS. So the dealer removed the note, retouched the note and put it in his own holder as a 35PQ. Avoid this dealer as he overprices everything and pretends to be about customer service when it is etract every dollar possible from customer. He won't reply to any of my emails now. Contact me if you want his name and Ebay profile. I am angry more at myself for being such a rookie sucker. But he really disappointed me. I spent a lot of money with him.
