Like many, I do some autograph selling on eBay. Today I had an inquiry about a signed document I have listed. It's not a major piece....an agreement between Paramount Pictures and Joel McCrea to reference his name in a scene of an upcoming picture of theirs...a perfectly verifiable example of his signature.
The person interested wrote me asking a few questions about condition, if all of the pages of the legalize were included, where I had acquired it, etc.. Also: "Do you offer a COA"?. I've had questions in the past about if a particular item had been authenticated by JSA, PSA, etc. I state that in the description if so (although I don't procure them personally but include it if it came with one).
I've never had this question before. What is your feeling about offering COAs? In my own case, I figure one from me would be meaningless since I'm not a dealer...just a collector selling to other collectors. I do state I stand behind what I offer and, if it's proven to not be good by a tpa, send it back for a full refund.
I've purchased from dealers who send along a COA...others who just allow the invoice to basically serve that function. I'm just curious as to what your practice is on COAs and your reasoning.... those in my lower volume circumstances or regular dealers.
