  • Baker COA?

    Has this guy been on this site at all? I'd love to have some discussions with him...then ask him to leave LOL. I do not buy artifacts but I look at sales. There are loads with his "COA" and the one I looked at today (and many others) on eBay for a Moustache Simpson is disgustingly wrong IMHOP

      Not likely to see many people who sell paper chatting it up on this forum for several reasons. The biggest reason imo is because if you post and read regularly you figure out how much you don't know. People who are making money off of there own "expert" knowledge don't want to be exposed as anything less than expert. But of course if you do your research and look at all of these coas floating around, they read more like resumes, lots of bad resumes...

      Simple things like material types being wrong or not matching location and typology errors are some of the easiest to spot indicators when web browsing. And of course the g-10 phenomenon... Price can also be another indicator of fraudulent items...

          I'm sure there are good artifacts papered by Baker..but people stay away from them because of his reputation..

              Baker's COA reputation is shot, imhop, just like a collection with even one fake in them soils the collection. Sure he has a few real nice artifacts here and there but the preponderance of what we see online from him proves he is a big pooper. (imhop.) Only takes one fake in a collection.

                New paper just throws up a red flag for me so I just shut down when I see it. Generally speaking I figure it’s hard to make a buck telling folks no when they send in their artifacts and many authenticators sell their soul for the almighty dollar? Or maybe they look at it as not being able to say it’s definitely a fake? Who knows but in my mind the standard for authentication should be that it’s without a doubt real and that’s why I wouldn’t make a dime in this business. I guess having no regulated standard is where this goes off the rails and is why paper is pretty much meaningless unless it’s really old and good luck finding that!

                  Hello I’ve been collecting points for 50 years and just started buying a few pieces in the past year baker taught me a good lesson really quickly!!! I do believe that they are a very few that still have their heart in the right place and try to do the right thing

                    I am hoping that they—-the authenticity group can get together and form an association with a board members that would have authority to dismiss anyone who continues to screw up!!! As I understand the ones that are doing right don’t have the cash flow that the other ones do. The one that I know I believe that he’ll go out of business before he will paper a bad point

                        Good idea Deb, the paper is just to stiff and glossy for the other obvious choice while in the outhouse. Lol
