Last week Gerald Tebben asked about PNG Authentication Certificates.

In last week's E-Sylum you asked if anyone had a PNG Authentication Certificate they could scan. I have one and have scanned it.
The original document is legal size. It's a two-sided document, the "certification" stuff is on the front side, the back side consists of the legal folderol.
Thanks! The address and other information are obsolete, and Michael is OK with publishing this. He will also offer it to the Newman Numismatic Portal to preserve for posterity. Their digitization equipment would do a better job - he had to make do with his letter-size scanner.
PNG Authentication Certificate (Front - top only)
PNG Authentication Certificate (Back - top only)
I noticed that at the top right (under the serial number) it says "(THIRD SERIES)". So I suppose new versions were printed as the form and its legal verbiage evolved. So more versions of these may be out there to be found. Does anyone have a different one to report?
