A professional typographer with 50 years experience in the business has confirmed that the typeface in an authentic Hawaii Department of Health long-form birth certificate issued in 1961 is consistent, and concludes the document released by the White House as Barack Obama’s 1961 birth certificate – with its typeface anomalies – is anything but genuine.
“From the beginning, when I saw that some of the typed letters on the Obama long-form birth certificate did not match for size or style, I found evidence the document was a forgery,” retired New York City typographer Paul Irey told WND. “Still, I wanted to see other birth certificates from the same era and from the same office in the state of Hawaii.”
Irey concluded the different size and shape typefaces meant the Obama birth certificate had been composed on different typewriters – a finding that led Irey to conclude the Obama birth certificate is a forgery assembled by using more than one birth certificate as templates. He said it appears images of words and letters were taken and copied onto the forged Obama birth certificate.
“Steel-stamped letters typed by a manual typewriter do not expand to larger sizes and morph into different styles and shapes,” Irey said. “They are irrefutable proofs of forgery.”
