*** NOTE: Any stated "replacement" certificates are not authorized by Mel Fisher's Treasures. Any stated "Fisher tags" refer to printed insert cards (usually barcoded) and not original plastic tags. Any stated "Grade quality" in conflict with the Grade in the Fisher database or on a Fisher certificate is given as our own opinion about quality and does not imply that Mel Fisher's Treasures will or should upgrade the coin to that Grade. By ruling of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida in Admiralty, Mel Fisher's Treasures is the only entity authorized to (1) authenticate that a coin has been recovered from the Atocha, and (2) assign Grades to coins recovered from the Atocha. ***
