However, I would prefer that ANACS not certify something as "Antiqued" [by me and/or Moonlight Mint] if I did not actually issue it that way.
I will send them an email.
I wonder if "artificially toned" or "artificially antiqued" was used in that line description on the submission form.
Thanks for dropping in. This one may be worth a phone call. ANACS really dropped the ball in this situation. We are paying them to grade, authenticate, and encapsulate our submissions. They obviously did not do their homework/necessary research on the coin in question. A simple visit to your website would show that you never antiqued and sold a 1919 Peace dollar. Again, I have no problem with the person altering the coin after purchase and actually like how it looks. However, this action by ANACS makes it more difficult for you now to ever antique and sell a 1919 Peace dollar. Again, nobody cares if this was a raw coin but with ANACS certifying it as antiqued implies that you did it and that changes everything. It may be worth adding a statement to your website noting that one 1919 Peace dollar was artificially antiqued after sale (not by you) and mistakenly certified as such by ANACS.
Wonder if they'll kill the cert number like PCGS did with that guy's 1909 VDB non-matte proof? Wondering how the owner of the coin feels about that also....
@Chiefbull artificially antiqued so that would would make it "AA"
ANACS & ICG
...I bought it raw and sent it to ANACS.
On the way to ANACS.
Was it in gold ??
Is that the reeded-edge or smooth-edge version?
I wish, copper outer, brass inner.
