although this only mentions presses, not the actual dies. That said, the technology is only going to get better and with the financial incentives so huge, it seems inevitable that the TPGs are going to start certifying fakes. Heck, it has already happened. I read in the IHC journal "Longacre's Ledger" that series specialist Rick Snow has identified a couple of fakes in real PCGS holders.
