Default Certificate of Authenticity

I have noticed in the past that there have been several threads by people who are looking for hi-res scans of a specific certificate that has been damaged or even never received. I have recently joined that category of people when I received my Museum Collection Sting today and had an idea. It would be really nice if we had a 'community/forum database' with the entire selection of certificates; somewhere we could go to get ones that we need or simply just to look at the others without having to shout out to the forum in hopes the right person reads it.

Therefore, my question is this: With the size restrictions on the photo galleries, simply creating an album of them would not work. So, is there a way anyone could think to make this work in a reasonable manner?

(Apologies if something like this exists already and I just couldn't find it.)

I have several certificates that I purchased from UC a long time ago for the gandalf staff and a couple of helms. I also will be selling a BROKEN Anduril Limited Edition sword (the Pommel is detached) and has both certificates.

That's true am.dk, but mistakes happen and sometimes the certificate doesn't get put in the box, so people are trying to get one. Also, some people sell their swords but have lost the certificate and the buyer still wants one. With the exception of numbered editions, a dealer like Smithblades has extras to cover these kinds of situations.

Except for the Sting and Glamdring MC Swords, all other ltd ed's that I know of had certificates with written in serial numbers (in regular pen). So what I am saying is, if you had an Isildur Helm but lost the certificate, I have that certificate (the certificate came directly from UC) and the spot for the serial number is blank. All you would need to do is write in your serial number!

$100,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 mu-hahaha!

$15. I don't remember how much I paid for them ( i have a couple) but I know it was about $10 each. I asked for them long after the bankruptcy and after the helm was sold out.

i am not suer i now exactly what you mean.rosere111 .

is it a copy of the certificate whit no number on ore is it a real original certificate?

i have an original certificate for the mc glamdring sword, whit no number on .(nad why is there no number on my coa!)

i did not recived eny certificat whit my sword when i got it,so i got desperate.
i e-mailed mike at united cutlery about my missing coa.and a broken hatch on the display funituer.
and i think because of my bad englich spelling ,he did not seem to understand my problem.so five day later i resived a brand new coa,2 new hatch for the mc galmdring furnituer,and a new lock whit key. for free.
talk about fast and profesionel custemer service,it was time then

hold your coa.in to light .if the suface around and the letters inside the coa turns,black ore brown.ist a fake.
2 .if its a real coa.the colller on the onlay ,will turn orange gold glittering,when sun is added.
also the real coa have some onlay on.that blind peaple is able to read.
