I wouldn't have thought so.
You should try with 20 yrs experience.
If you feel you have a legitimate reason to believe the ACOA example isn't authentic, you are better to reach out directly to the source.
I think call out culture and bashing legitimate companies without giving them a chance to rectify the situation is damaging to the hobby. I think everyone forgets that authenticators are human and they can get things right 99 times, but people remember that 1 time they make a mistake. The question is how do they handle their mistakes? That is a measure of both a TPA and a seller.
To be transparent I am friends with Justin. I don't work for ACOA, but I know how hard he works and the effort he puts daily in this hobby.
I personally alerted him of this situation and he is looking into it. I would suggest following up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If he wants me to review his samplers, please let me know.
Message him at the email above and let him know.
I've sent them an email. I will update you when i get a reply
Adam, I agree that ACOA would have wanted the feedback but they're unusual. The typical TPA response to feedback is crickets.
Agreed, most aren't as receptive.
Thanks for trying.
I've just contacted a Marc Bolan family friend. I asked him if Bolan's brother is still alive or if he still has contact with Gloria and Roland. Failing that i will have to sit on it for another person familiar with Bolan's signature to come along
If the information is that few and far between I don't think we can say anything 100%.
