Touchstone Authentication and its owner Garry King are both very well known names within the autograph business, and over the last few years Garry has spent more and more time offering services such as tuition and authentication rather than simply buying and selling autographs.
As a result it became necessary to operate these services as a separate business, and Touchstone Authentication is the name now used by Garry for his authentication services.
Garry already offers these and other services to a number of UK dealers and collectors as well as auction houses around the UK, and you can find out more about this on the website.
Garry also produces the Parts One and Two courses for AFTAL which help to ensure that all AFTAL dealers are kept up to date with not just the changes in consumer law, but also the ways in which the fraudsters and fakers try to relieve the unsuspecting of their money! These courses are open to all and are designed to improve the autograph knowledge of both collectors and dealers. More details can again be found on the website.
