After I had my coins returned from ANACS I now have a finger print on the observe of one of the coins submitted! What should (or could) I do now?

Contact ANACS, but unless you have evidence that the coin was printless when you sent it to them...well good luck.

Call them talk to them about it. They should make it right, by offering you a set amount of money or buy the coin from you at market grade/price.

All I have is photographs of the coin taken months prior to submission. I doubt they are prepared to offer to purchase the coin as the value is at least $1,500

...you never know. The evidence may be in the images you provide them in contrast to the "now" product, especially if they just graded it recently.

Strike while the iron is hot!

It would be pretty cool (in a CSI kind of way) if the fingerprint matched one of the ANACS employees.

You haven't got anything to lose. I would be pretty annoyed if I were you! even more so because its a $1500 coin

I've heard similar stories of fingerprints appearing after slabbing..the biggest problem is how to prove who did it...sometimes it takes a while for them to appear.That why I always rinse my red cents in acetone before putting in flips or 2x2's.

I would be pretty upset as well! Granted, this is not a $1500 coin, but sometimes it can turn out nice:

I was watching a documentary about US coins and the mint a couple weeks ago and it showed how 3 men at NGC were deciding on a grade for a gold coin and I noticed all 3 were handling it bare handed which I thought was odd considering they could put a fingerprint on the coin before it got slabbed.

I remember that show, if I remember correctly it was a 1907 St Gaudens and they agreed on a MS-65

None of the graders at the TPG's use gloves. You'll also notice they don't wear masks either to prevent spittle from landing on the coin while talking.

Yes that was it Bryan. Did you notice the bare hands also?
