Letter of Authentication
Along with a third party Certificate of Authenticity (COA), Smith & Son's Collectibles will provide a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) with each piece of memorabilia.
LOA's are mostly common in the memorabilia industry. Generally speaking, a valid LOA for any of our items will include specific details about how it was produced, the names of people or associates involved in the item or similar resources that contain either specific or related information about either that celebrity artist of interest.
The LOA should also state the qualifications and full contact information of the individual or entity that authored the certificate with his or her complete and current contact information. Which of course is Smith & Son's Collectibles.
Our third party COA's are generally issued by Authentication Services Australia.
One of Australia's leading memorabilia authenticators. You can find them at www.coa.net.au
