Is it just me or is the Aldrin signature cut from something else and then glued to the FDC (291080611467)?

Shouldn't PSA make this distinction? Also pretty deceptive?

You are right, looks like the Aldrin signature was cut from a book. Another negative toward PSA/DNA. They need to be more descriptive of the item in the COA.

It's likely not deception that PSA/DNA doesn't mention the Aldrin signature is a cut and paste job on this FDC; considering their usual (in)attention to detail, it's quite possible they never even noticed.

I'm not certain, but it sure looks like the image with Collins and Armstrong was cut and pasted to the envelope as well. Probably cut from a magazine photo.
