From the following article at Hasofer.com it seems like the only way to be certain that one has a Kosher Shofar is by buying one with a Hechsher.

The only way you can be sure that you are buying a kosher shofar is if it has a hechsher, certification certificate, physically attached to it, normally an adhesive sticker.

Is this accurate? Is there a way of determining whether a Shofar is Kosher even without certification?
