Here is a new company.
INL Inc. Independent Numismatic Laboratory Inc.
50 West 47th St. Room 201
New York, NY 10036
I do have 4 Morgans of these slab types. I can add the other three if someone wants me to.
I left the picture so you can copy it and adjust as needed.

Thought I would put them all in here. I only did one reverse since they are all the same.

This is an old company. They were once called FCS, out of N.Y. These guys actually started before most and many of their grades were right on. I saw some at a coin show and some Federal at a flea markets. They were really way ahead of those services that lasted. Cannot tell you why they died. Kick myself for not buying a couple. Do not know about their graders.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know about this company before.
Now that you mentioned FCS, I'll add those pictures here.
The just sold on Ebay but I was not the winner. I had a high bid in but someone wanted it more.
FCS Slab/cert dated 12/10/1986

I don't really know any of the grades at any of the TPG comanies, so I don't know any of the intials. Only if they write articles for Coin World.
