I recently discovered that my Abraham Lincoln note and signature his highly likely nothing more than a crude forgery. The dealership will not buy it back even though they claim to have a lifetime guarantee. In addition, the dealership steadfastly claims that the document was forensically inspected and deemed to be authentic. The authenticators however have quite a history passing off forged documents as authentic
at this point I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never recoup of my initial investment, but more importantly I want to hold this dealership accountable for selling forgeries.
Any ideas on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

"Forensically inspected" means "fake" 99% of the time in this hobby. Any dealer who uses this sort of authenticator is selling fakes and knows it.
If you used a credit card or Paypal file a chargeback immediately.
I believe you said you purchased this for $14,000. I would hire an attorney at this point and even if he takes a third for winning the case you will still be left with over $9,000 and a painful lesson.
Paul, I would post all of the details here, including the dealership name, the "Forensic" person, etc.
