  So they don't even check the Serial no on the note to see if it's been graded before...Did you lightly flatten a bend/fold!.lol..

My apologies, the $500 note pictured above is not mine and has never been mine.

There are a lot of notes that look uncirculated and likely are uncirculated but sometimes they just don't have embossing even though the paper looks fully original otherwise. 

These are the notes that are going to be subjective because the graders have to make a judgement call on them.  Are they 58 flat, CU with no Q or CU with Q?  Sometimes it's a tough decision

A great reminder, back to basics; Grading is an opinion.

The Registry Set, just like Ebay feedback, is a hook to your ego to remain on that site and do more business there. 
PCGS had a great following as the hook was strong.  Can't believe they threw away all that marketing skill....

That 58Q to 66Q is exactly the point about grading. There may not have actually been a fold, but maybe someone saw something that they thought might be a fold.

Recently, I have crossed several 58Q PCGS notes to 65Q PMG. I bought them raw and they were all Gem CU - no folds, bends, etc. But, PCGS decided otherwise. So, eventually, I cut them out and submitted them to PMG, where they were correctly graded.

But, I've also had the opposite experience. A PMG 64 flat that was original Gem all day long, that crossed to 66Q.

Graders do their best, but have good and bad days, or just see things differently. Don't harbor the illusion that TPG is a science.
   "YEP'' Getting notes graded by a TPG company, is like deep sea fishing!!. You never know what your going to catch...

The above note was mine that crossed to a higher grade. It was onsite graded PCGS-C 58PPQ, then handed back to them the same day for an upgrade.
