DOC SAVAGE I admire your intensity, Please let us make sense of what you have started.
1) ARTIFACTS, I am simply interpreting in layman's term your definition of ARTIFACTS; my point is if you define the commodity (ie Notes/Bonds?FRN etc) as ARTIFACT as simply man-made thing. then I conclude that you precisely defined the commodity you are purchasing is all the above that associate it from your meaning of ARTIFACT, like a demonetized currency or notes/bonds. Be careful of what you are defining. You said be PRECISE and I am PRECISED to what you stated of the meaning of ARTIFACT and it's not useless you opened a statement and that's a fact.
IF YOU ARE A PURCHASER THE VALUE IS RELEVANT LIKEWISE ALSO TO THE SELLER and that again my friend is a fact. A BUYER and a SELLER always start the negotiation of how much value is the commodity, give and take. NOT NEGOTIATE SIGN A CONTRACT AND TALK ABOUT THE VALUE LATTER. When an artifact is on the market or when you go to a store the value of the artifact is displayed not hidden. Contrary to the trading you know for ten years.
It's a fact that:
Yes I will attack your assertion the denial of the issuer and I know you will bring that up, because that was your first factual statement and I am waiting for you to open it up. MY ANSWER IS FLATLY NO THE US TREASURY CAN"T DENY THEIR NONE EXISTENCE. If these war bonds where not issued and non existence then if are looking for one you are creating a fraud, A BIG FRAUD , And a fraud is a criminal offense. What the US Treasury can do is to say they are counterfeit. SO IF THEY SAY COUNTERFEIT THEREFORE THERE IS ORIGINAL OR REAL COMMODITY. Again this contradicts your purpose of being a purchaser of this commodities. I ask you why are you buying it if you say the US FEDS deny it's existence, but all the while you are talking of very extensive and elaborate authentication? It's contradicting your analogy. And that's a fact like the arti-fact.
2) SERIAL NUMBERS, please read again my concerns about the serial numbers it is very simple the first step of pre-authentication. If the number correspond to their record but already redeemed then of course what you presented is counterfeit. BUT THEN IF IT"S NOT YET REDEEMED ON THEIR RECORD they go to the next step, the HISTORY AND ORIGIN of the commodity. If all your documents (these are back up by SKR, Bank officers signature, Trustees and all other identifying records all notarized and if the owner decide he be represented by a lawyer to attest the ownership and authenticity) proved that you are the owner. Then you pass the scrutiny and they will assume your commodity is real, then the US TREASURY do the FINAL AUTHENTICATION = PHYSICAL AUTHENTICATION and inventory. if you failed in the physical authentication you go to jail. Attempting to defraud or to commit a fraud against the US GOVERNMENT. Remember you have to pay for the authentication if the box is opened, they will scrutinized one by one hundred and thousands of notes, and the physical authentication will take for several days you'll also pay for their their food & lodging and everything in between that's why I told you that a private buyer is at risk if he deals with this kind process, if he fail the seller is not liable you purchase the ownership has change, you are liable you took it to the US FED in the hope that you will make a big buck.
3) OF COURSE A PRIVATE BUYER IS NOT THE FED the US FED is not even a buyer I DOT KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS AS A FACT the buyer is the US TREASURY, but because the US IS BANKRUPT and cannot pay this OBLIGATION not ARTIFACT (i guest you it by now that it's not an ARTIFACT) they ask a PRIVATE PLACEMENT buyer which of course is license by the FED. I SAY LICENSE because in commodity trading no body deals with un license traders AND ITS A FACT not an ARTIFACT. because this involve millions of dollars in return the PPP invest the INSTRUMENT in a private placement program as collateral to banks, private investors etc. guaranteed by the US TREASURY.
IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT THESE INSTRUMENTS WHERE USE AS WAR BONDS DURING WW1 TO COUNTRIES LIKE EUROPE IN EXCHANGE FOR GOLD AND ALSO TO PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS WITH GOLD DEPOSITS BEFORE HITLER WILL CONFISCATE THEM AND ALSO IN ASIA BECAUSE JAPAN IS LOOTING THE WHOLE ASIA WHICH STARTED WAY BACK 1932. THAT'S THERE ARE WAR BONDS ALL OVER ASIA. SO THE U.S. of A. CAN'T DENY IT.
TO CONCLUDE AUTHENTICATION IS VERY SIMPLE PERIOD. THE US FED DO NOT WANT EVEN TO OPEN THE BOX WHICH CONTAINS THOUSANDS OF NOTES. BY SERIAL NOS., THEN THE HISTORY, THE OWNERS RECORD, THEN A PHYSICAL AUTHENTICATION IF NOT OPENED THAT MEANS THEY HAVE LESS TO WORRY THAT IT WAS COUNTERFEIT ALL THEY HAVE TO SCRUTINIZED IS PICK RANDOMLY A COUPLE OF HUNDREDS MAYBE THEN THAT'S IT. THE JOB IS FINISH YOU GET PAID OR GO TO JAIL.
4) have you even heard of the PATRIOT ACT? Then look for it, why any entity, corporation or individual will be monitored how and where will he invest his money coming from any transaction which involved all banks, Private Investment transacting under the International Banking LAW and the ICC.
IF YOU INSIST ON YOUR PROCEDURE THEN THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO. IT'S A MATTER OF CHOICE AUTHENTICATE THEN EACH AND EVERY HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND DOCUMENTS IN YOUR LAB INCLUDING THE CONTAINER AND BOXES.
