The only point I was trying to make is that he could be showing off a replacement Birth Certificate and in that case it wouldn't have been typed in circa 1961 but printed / typed in circa 2008.
I had to get a replacement BC a year or so ago and now all they do is print them out. At least in Texas that's all they do, I have no clue about Hawaii. Its still a valid birth certificate, has my name, date of birth, parents, etc, it just isn't the original.
I agree the one they have posted looks computer generated. I don't know how they could even scan a fresh piece of paper and have it look so immaculate. You would think that even if they had to mail it to him, their would be creases in the paper from folding it.
Also, to note my point about it not being an original, The bottom left hand corner has " (Rev 11/01)" listed, which makes me believe that it has to be a replacement copy and not the original.
