Was wondering if anyone one else heard that there are Masonic symbols on the original 1932 Washington quarter p ? There are rumors that John Flanagan the sculptor of the coin implanted hidden Masonic symbols on the quarter.
Rumor also is that when these quarters are sent to be graded, the TPG's remove the symbols from the fields on the obverse side by wheeling them down.

I started to check it out myself and what I find is that on all PCGS and NGC graded coins there is a suspicious pattern that looks like alterations to surface of every graded coin. If you look cab see on every graded quarter that you can see evidence of surface buffing from the L in Liberty to right above In God We Trust. Can definitely see the original petina still on coin in word Liberty and 1932.

In right field can see same suspicious buffing mark from Y in Liberty to top of ribbon on George Washington ponytail. This is present on all 1932 Washington quarter p. Has anyone ever noticed this before just curious?
