COA's Explained

A COA (Certificate of Authenticity) is a document supplied with an item that verifies its" authenticity". Items should have matching serial numbers and/or holographic stickers to ensure the item is genuine. While bearing in mind that not all COA's are actually legitimate and all research on the COA authenticator and the signature in questions must be done prior to purchase. All items "should" be entered into a authenticators database so it is traceable at any given time or be accompanied by a RACC Approved COA but not all do do this (such as Authenitcateit & BAM Autographs)

We have complied a list of the companies that our items will have COA's from so you can further complete your research to ensure your peace of mind.
