It's not DNA. It's some sort of fluorescing plastic additive. I promise you it is NOT a biological material like DNA -- which would degrade over time, and from light exposure, but would also not be suitable to maintain inertness. The "DNA" language is Don Willis' attempt to "sex up" the holder by using marketing spin buzz words like "DNA". In his defense, Don Willis also appropriately refers to it as a "taggant", which is basically some sort of additive to the plastic which can only be "seen" or "detected" by a special machine or under special lighting.
There is NOT an RFID chip (or any other type of chip) in the holder, as was suggested by @jello . No where has PCGS suggested that the holder contains an embedded chip of any kind. The full information was released here more than a week ago.
No, because anything that can be manufactured can be manufactured.
It is, however, more counterfeit resistant.
I realize it's not true DNA...which is why I had it in quotes
I figured as much, but I was just making sure. I get annoyed my non-science people (i.e., business hucksters) trying to use "sex appeal" of cool words to oversell their wares.
My exact thoughts . lol
My vote is no.
I agree, and thought his use of "DNA" was stupid.
(wait for it)
How hard is it to find and copy tags put into plastic? It sounds easy but I'm not very smart in that area.
I really like the new holders.
