    Help. I have this graded coin by ANACS. They graded it a MS64 with 5 steps. But I look at the steps under a microscope I don't see the 5 Steps. Can someone help explain how they saw 5 steps and why ethos coin is a MS64?

    I see what you mean. Waiting to hear from the experts.

    I'd say someone took the original coin out and another one in. I'm not an expert, but that doesn't look MS anything to me.

    I agree with the 64 grade but there is not enough detail in the images to see much about the steps.

    Unfortunately if those are the best pics you can post, I can't make heads or tails out of it! Free pun! :D

    I took some additional pics. But I see no clear steps. The encasing still looks seal. But what do I know. Lol.

    I'll trust that ANACS got it correct.

    Cannot corroborate due to insufficient evidence ie. poor quality photos.

    I think the graded coin was removed and this one was substituted for it. Not even close to FS.

    Yes, that's what I said. I still think so.

    It's incredibly hard to actually do that and there's absolutely no point in doing that on a $5 coin in an old holder. Those pictures are no where near good enough
