Counterfeit BMIHT Heritage Certificates

Courtesy Classic & Sports Car Magazine
Classic & Sports Car magazine posted an article detailing how false Heritage Certificates have been discovered recently. While a bit of a novelty here in the USA, the certificates are accepted as legitimate documentation of an automobile's build date and, important for taxation purposes, the registration date in the UK. 

A Heritage Certificate will confirm the details of the cars original paint color, options, dispatch date and to which dealer it was shipped to in America. SABCC'er and E-Type restorer Richard Cunningham applied for and received one for his 1964 E-Type coupe. It is an impressive document that will do any owner proud.
