Default Psa question

I have never had very good luck with PSA. Lost items twice for months.
Lately having to send things back for a reholder. Need your opinion on
this one.

I sent in a 1981 Donruss Promo or test panel to be graded. This particular one
has never been graded because PSA didn't have a holder for it. It is approximately 10 1/2 x 4 3/4. Yesterday I got my grades and they have
labeled it a 1981 Donruss test panel. It should be labeled a Jumbo or large panel .

Now here is my question. The panel was graded a psa 7. How do I know
if this panel was graded down because they thought it should have been
a different size? My other 2 graded a 9 so it is a real question. It also
makes me wonder what is going on at PSA these days.

I sent this in on an 8 day express and of course that didn't happen and now
this. The last reholder took a month.
I really feel this should be regraded, don't know how to get that done.

If they thought it should be a different size, it wouldn't have gotten a grade at all.
If you think they labeled it wrong, then you can contact their customer service and if they agree with you, you can send it back and they'll reholder it free as a mechanical error.

On something like a panel a 7 is a pretty fantastic grade. A 9 is exceptional. Hard to say without seeing it. But an item could easily be graded for a very slight corner issue, light surface scratches, print defects, etc. just because the first 2 got a 9 doesn’t mean every one will.
