Does Delaware provide "originals" of the Certificate of Incorporation or Good Standing Certificates?
Delaware generally does not provide a document that would be considered an "original," even when the documents are file stamped or certified. Rather, Delaware provides electronic copies or, in some cases, printouts of the electronic documents, which we provide to you through your dashboard on Valcu. Occasionally, banks or states (when reviewing a qualification application) may expect to see an "original" with a raised seal. Delaware no longer provides the filings with a raised seal and hasn't for years. In place, Delaware will (if ordered) provide a certification of the document, with a number that can be verified online. Note that the certification also has no raised seal and is simply a printout.
