Ed, I am not disagreeing with you.
I myself would just feel better if I had a way of identifying the coin by its appearance, scratches blemishes etc. are a way of claiming something if it were to get "lost". You can also insure things for a declared value if you are willing to pay the premium. Even the post office will insure things for a declared value. A few pictures are better then nothing and they won't hurt the coin. Sure you need to get it certified if you want to sell it or fully insure it, but some insurance is better then none.
I just hope he has the real thing. That would be a great find...
