I like to do things a little differently. So lately I found myself a very nice challenge. One that allows for some encouraging progress in the beginning but also one that will be very hard to fully accomplish, and thus one that will keep me busy for quite some time. I'm calling it "Project PMG" where PMG stands for "Pick Matches Grade". The idea is to find a note for all 29 existing grades on the 70 point scale, where the catalog number matches the grade.

I have defined a few further constraints, that may be abandoned if need be, and that also allow for some later improvement:

1. Preferrably Pick numbers, although numbers from other catalogs are OK.
2. Preferrably PMG slabs, although slabs from other TPG's are OK.
3. Preferrably only 1 note per country, although duplicates are OK.
4. Preferrably only 1 note per year, although duplicates are OK.

The only really hard condition is that the catalog number printed on the header MUST MATCH the grade on the header. This concerns only the numerical part, i.e. a P-65s in PMG 65 EPQ totally qualifies, as 65 = 65.

I've been doing this for some 3-4 months now, and I'm having all the positions from 10 thru 69 filled. I will show you what I have accumulated so far. While doing this, I also found the set contains several peculiarities, such as specimen, overprinted or replacement notes.

Disclaimer: I know probably some of you will object against this idea as it is just about the most flagrant violation imaginable of the rule "Buy the note, not the holder" but well, too bad.

Another disclaimer: The PMG company has nothing to do with this.

So, hang on, here we go
