You've been fooled John1! This slab isn't even ICG, the security stripe on the back says IGC, that's nothing but an alphabet company

Yes, great eye catching it. I've also spotted some questionable authentic slabs, PCGS and NGC, with signs of possible tampering.

Thanks, people can get scammed really quick with these coins, I like to keep my eye out for anything that looks fake or really highly priced.
