Reputable and affordable authenticators?

I have a $1 Silver Certificate which belongs to my landlord that is signed by both Richard Nixon and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Upon showing pictures by email to a local autograph company I was told that they were not authentic. I want to sell the note for him but would need to get it authenticated first. The fees at PSA/DNA are $175 ($100 for Eisenhower and $75 for Nixon). That is prohibitively expensive based on the estimated value should they be real.

I see other authentication companies on the web which are less expensive but I am not familiar with their reputations. Can anyone suggest a company which is more affordable yet reputable enough to be widely accepted in the marketplace. Thanks!

    Your not going to get much cheaper if you want a reputable company. But you can try www.spenceloa.com , they may be cheaper.

    Or, consign it to an auction house and they will have there in-house authenticators look at and if they deem it real, would allow you to sell it through them.
    Looking to have some custom cuts or plain custom cards built? PM me.
