Nah; there's a guide published[1] which has all of them. [If you're a
bar tender or a notary, you have to be able to check them.]

It's no different than the issues with verifying passports; you have
to be familiar with what a valid passport from that country for that
period of time looks like, and know how to read the MRZ code (assuming
the country actually has it.)

I imagine that we can arrange to have a copy of that or a similar book
around for people to compare.
