can get all of my items examined and verifiedI think the only way truly for that to happen is someone that worked directly on the show and handled them. It's tricky, and probably won't happen unless you know them.
In the past I have written a LOA explaining just how I came to get my hands on a certain prop that to me is sometimes better than a COA.

Ever since Jamie Foxx was cast as Maxwell Dillon, better known to comic-book fans as Electro, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans have been slavering for a look at him in his villainous make up.
That wait is now over, as Jamie was spotted in Times Square on Monday wearing a full face of make up and creepy contact lens. It was quite the distracting look, and gives us a sense that Electro will be a compelling villain.
While Jamie's make-up was frightening enough, when the director yelled 'Action!' he was truly transformed.
A string of LED lights lined the interior of Jamie's dark hood and his face eerily glowed blue when they were switched on. The opalescent blue face paint was paired with contact lenses that turned the area around Jamie's dark pupils electric blue and cosmetically applied bulging neck veins menacingly slithered up onto his face.
The comic book version of Electro has been yellow and green but the new version certainly gives the character a futuristic look.
Electro-fying! Jamie Foxx is pictured as the Amazing Spider-Man villain for the first time...
