Our COA's are done to the best of my ability but is only an opinion. No matter who issues a COA paper it cannot prove your point is "real".  A certificate is merely an opinion, however, it should be an opinion from someone who knows the region and recognizes the correct and incorrect materials as well as the manufacturing techniques used by the people of that area.
