A letter of authenticity is a letter that accompanies an object (usually a collectible or a item of high value) which certifies it’s authenticity. Due to the rise in fraud, letters of authenticity have become the lifeblood of the collectibles industry, and items without them usually drop in value significantly. If you are purchasing a collectible or something of high value, it is advisable to get a letter or authenticity with it.
