Bank of Canada set among PMG Registry winners

The U.S.-based third-party grading service Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) recently announced the top collectors and collections in its competitive registry for 2019.

With more than 12,000 sets, the PMG Registry recognizes winners in four categories, including “Best U.S. Set,” “Best World Set,” “Best Presented Set” and “Overall Achievement in Collecting.”

Ontario’s Ken Carnahan was one of three winners in the Best World Set category for his 1935-to-date Bank of Canada set, complete with replacements.

“As interest in the PMG World Registry heats up, Canada continues to be very popular,” reads a statement issued by PMG. “Canada has seen many areas gain strength, and one area in particular that has been competitive in the registry is the Bank of Canada 1935-Date.”

Included in Carnahan’s set are the sought-after 1935 Series $20 and $25 notes, each graded Very Fine-25, plus that series’ $2 and $5 notes in Very Fine-30 and Very Fine-35 EPQ (exceptional paper quality), respectively.

“This set stands alone among Bank of Canada collectors and registry competitors alike.”

Winners receive a personalized plaque, an icon of recognition next to their PMG Registry set and a $500 PMG grading credit.
