This morning one of my eBay listings was removed because it did not conform with its list of "approved" third-party graders. The item in question was a banknote certified by BCS, which I take to be the only reputable Canadian banknote grading company. Has anyone had the same issue, and what are things I can possible do to overcome this issue?

Only PCGS, PMG, and Legacy are approved third party graders for currency.

You can still sell them if you don't show the numeric grade.

Defeats the purpose . US grading companies are way more Liberal
than the Conservative grading of BCS .
The US companies ( very similar results to Coins ) simply cannot
or will not grade Canadian notes to Canadian Standards , which
are tougher and way more realistic .

I personally don't use PCGS for Canadian banknotes. I also wouldn't buy Canadian banknotes solely based on a PCGS graded either -- I usually subtract a few points from the grade to account for the different scales. The Canadian scale caps at UNC68 for banknotes.
Pacificoin, have you had similar experiences with selling ICCS-graded items? Seems like ICCS also isn't on the list...
I guess I could try to sell the item as a raw banknote if all other options fail.
