Hello Roy. First of all, please accept sincere thoughts and positive energy for your health.

Regarding the inscription: The EGL group used to have many lab locations. Prefixes like "TD" may indicate which lab issued the report but in late 2014, in response to historic EGL over-grading, all diamonds with EGL grading reports were removed from professional trading networks. This effectively ended their volume-trading and EGL International ceased operating in 2015. As a result their website and report-lookup service no longer exist.

EGL-USA separated itself from the overseas labs before the ban and remains in-business. They may have no information if it was graded overseas, but are easily contacted. Their phone number is +1-888-345-8724 and the email contact is [email protected]

EGL Platinum is what remains overseas. Like EGL-USA, they distanced itself from overgrading practices by the former EGL International. It's possible they could have records about this grading report if EGL-USA does not.

Also if send it to GIA can have it graded and re-laser inscripted????
I would suggest that you have the EGL inscription polished off prior to sending the diamond to GIA. Otherwise it will be dual-inscribed and potential buyers would no-doubt pause to do a hunt for this EGL information, as you have.

Wishing you strength, health and success.
