tech - Great note that we seldom see on the forum. Tell us the backstory and how you grade it, please!

=======
The backstory: a year ago I found a Windom in a Canadian auction and placed a bid--didn't win. Found another Windom earlier this year and placed a bid--didn't win.
Found TWO Windom notes in a recent auction and bid on both, not sure what I would have done had I won both however. As it goes I lost one and won one.
Now, this one I had graded as a Fine+ and bid accordingly. The note arrived and I was pleasantly surprised to find I had under-graded AND enclosed was the label I've included in this post. I've contacted PMG about a possible re-holder.
Label included with the note, but no explanation:

Been a while since I’ve posted on this thread. Here are a few of my most recent note purchases.

I know you're a Bust coin nut, didn't recall you were into paper!

I enjoy the paper just as much as I do coins. I am more of a type collector on the notes side. I really enjoy the large notes and most of mine are in the VF range.

@tech... very interested to hear what PMG says about the re-holder request. Cool stuff!

Tech, once a note has been removed from a holder, all bets are off.

I turned in some eBay bucks for this a few weeks back. It's not in great shape but that was part of the allure. Can't imagine the history this note saw or was part of considering when and where it circulated. Could this have been part of an Al Capone heist or something? :)

tech - Thanks for that background.

Steve - I know all bets are off with a coin, but I would think having the confirming serial # on the label would make a difference for paper money - ?

kevro - You might be right. Judging from the condition, it outlasted Capone!

I'll agree with Steve on this one. Wouldn't they have to re-grade it to be sure that something didn't change on the note after it was taken out of the holder?

Okay, here's the scoop. Talked with PMG, told them about the label, etc., etc. As I suspected I would have to submit it for grading not re-holder. So, note went out yesterday afternoon to PMG. Given published times for grading, return time (7 days is my usual receipt time); it will be after first of the year before I know how the note was re-graded. Hopefully it won't go down.
Merry Christmas to all

Nice note Kevro I have some 1928 Chicago numericals and I often wonder if any Chicago gangsters or bootleggers ever held them

A very nice note just lying around an auction with no bidders, so I entered a bid and here it is, saved from auction obscurity.
