    Very nice looking. From the photos it appears to be in great shape, no folds or stains so it should grade a 64.

    It looks like it would grade in the 60's, but the margins are off a bit. But I think 64 or 65 is legit.

    I can't vouch for the quality of the paper. Just how it LOOKS.

    Nice example! I don't see any problems with it, might be worth sending that in for grading. All $1000 notes sell above face so you're sitting on a good one.

    Welcome to Coin Talk. If it were mine, I'd have it graded. Would be easier for you (or your heirs) to sell.

    Burn, where and when did you get the bill ?

    Even if it falls to PMG 58, it should be worth $3K I think. In PMG 65, it's worth $6K.

    Not to burst your bubble, but in my 20 plus years of grading, i have seen allot
    Of notes come and go, as well as grades, though grading a note from a pic
    can be tricky, i can give you my opinion based on what i see, one of the first
    Things you look at is the margins, all looks good until you get to the top front
    it appears to me that it has been trimmed, as it is very uneven left to right
    even if you were able to maintain a gem grade which would be debatable
    you would most likely receive comments on the back and no higher then
    a 63 grade which is death for a gem note, especially with added comments
    from the TPG.

    my advice is just to hang on to it or sell it based on a gem note.

    Nobody's mentioned the 1" or so black line on the front under the THO in thousand. Not sure what that line is from. It doesn't look like it is from the next note or it would run the entire length of the bill. No?

    Maybe the op could post pics outside the sleeve, to better identify the mark
    If it isnt natural, would only add more comments on the back if submitted
    it wouldnt bring the grade down any lower.

    That line appears to be an alignment mark.

    I would have it graded. Well worth the fees.

    I don't think it's a 64. It has a more grayish color.
    I would be in the 50's.

    HCC created a thread where he showed us his PMG 65 $1,000 bill, Burn. I would study his bill CLOSELY.

    Should be possible to compare the sizes and color and other features on the 2 bills for you PC and Photoshop and Adobe experts and let us know.

    Me ? I can only click on pictures and then hit the "X" to make them go away. :D

    All things being equal, even if a gem grade would not go 64, the top boarder
    is just to far off, here,s an example from my collection and you can do your
    Own comparison :)

    Depending on what the OP paid for it, grading actually could hurt the value
    And cost him money if he,s expecting a higher grade such as a 64

    We don't know what he paid for it...but again, HawaiiCurrencyCollector just posted pics of his PMG 65 $1,000.

    I think the nagging question is, what did you pay for it ?
    If you dont mind sharing ? if you do no worries :)
    Grading should only be considered to increase the value
    and certain numbers are not very desirable :(

    To further illustrate my point and to compare apples to apples here,s a $1,000
    Bill in PMG 64, you have no issues on the back as per this note, so just want
    You to compare your front to this one.
