Steve Cyrkin of THE AUTOGRAPH COLLECTORS MAGAZINE wrote a article about a forensic scientist and noted handwriting expert titled THE FORGERS BEST FRIEND. Hmmm! He wrote the article about a man in Virginia named Chris Morales.
Chris Morales' resumes reads as follows ; International Police Technical Advisor, U.S. Department of Justice, International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP) I served as the Forensic Science Development Coordinator. I was responsible for creating and coordinating forensic training and development programs in various countries, including the establishment of state of the art police forensic laboratories throughout the western hemisphere. I also conducted hands-on training. This work was in support of U.S. foreign policy initiatives and foreign assistance programs.

steve cyrkins article starts off by stating that it is his most important article. One line in his article reads " I dont understand, the collector says. They came with authentication by Christopher Moraleshes a court-approved forensic document examiner and theres no one more respected than he is! "
OK so collectors buy things that were authenticated by Chris Morales then they go to another authentication company like PSA DNA and they are told that the item is not real based on?
PSA DNA has some good authenticators. Roger Epperson was once one of PSA DNA's top authenticators and today is considered be be one of the greatest authenticators in the history of authenticators.
Roger Epperson's resume reads as follows : Education
- Studied with many of the best in the business learning how to detect pen pressure .
Now Roger Epperson's resume is far more impressive than that of Chris Morales and there are less words on his resume and the words have fewer syllables, so if you have trouble reading then Roger Epperson has a more meaningful resume and therefore should be your choice for authenticator. His resume is real easy to read !
Chris Morales is suing Mr Cyrkin for writing the Article entitled "Christopher Morales: The Forgers Best Friend" . In my opinion Steve Cykin should be able to beat Chris Morales in court. The first thing Cyrkin needs to do is find out who Chris Morales best friend is, then he needs to prove that Chris Morales' best friend forged something. Maybe Morales' best friend is a black smith ? Or what if Chris Morales doesn't have a best friend ?
