Improved Banknote Identification and Attribution
World Banknote Grading adds more to its label than just country, denomination, date, serial number, catalog number, and grade.
We also add exact dates if known, signature identification whenever possible, printer, and other specific characteristics beneficial to improved attribution.
To assist topical collectors, thematic information is also included on the back of each label.
We use an extensive reference collection of banknotes from almost 300 existing and obsolete countries as well as books, periodicals, and other research material to verify each note.
Direct comparisons with similar notes from a given country are utilized during the identification and grading process.
