On eBay (270528108642).  How is it possible that this is a replacement banknote?  It's even PMG graded and noted as a replacement.  Judging by the number of times the seller uses "Replacement" in the description, I'm thinking he/she knows it is not a replacement note. 

I guess my question is, how can a Company that grades banknotes for a living not know what is and is not a replacement banknote?  Maybe Brent has a spare Charlton Catalogue that he can send to PMG.  ;D

THANKS,I JUST WENT BY WHAT THE HOLDER SAID.
GOD BLESS
Funny thing is that the holder doesn't say all of the other stuff he has to say about the note in his description....
Maybe I should bid and start my own PMG holder collection of flaws  ;D

Well its cancelled now..

Looks like PMG Likes Canadian Money...  All the notes he has for auction are GEMs..

Sometimes I think PMG Justs has 3 Stamps... 65,66,67.

They randomly selects one of the 3 for each note being graded.  :)

Sorry... shots at PMG are so easy.  Too easy..
