PSA/DNA Mis-Authenticates Again - Goldin Auctions Just days ago you read about a very embarrassing mis-authentication made by PSA/DNA. This was just one of the thousands of horrific mistakes made by this company who claims they can authenticate autographs. They encapsulated a George H.W. Bush signature and authenticated it as a George W. Bush signature. There is absolutely no excuse for this mistake as the two Bush signatures have no resemblance to each other. The only answer for this blunder…Read more…
