I don't think that's Elvis. Let's see what others say.
Thanks Steve, i was leaning toward being authentic, but i would appreciate other opinions.
In my opinion, this example is real
The salutation concerns me the most.
It caught my eye as well at a glance.
Not saying anything about this piece at all, but it would be interesting to see a list, compiled by folks like Steve and Pete etc., of features/tricks commonly(?) seen in cut/loose forged sigs in general. In some situations the vague can bring a certain clarity.
FWIW I have no hesitation in stating that this is not genuine...
Jake...is it for sale currently?? And if so where??
Elvis's writing is rarely this smooth. He tended to write a bit awkwardly, unpolished.
Of course, I could be wrong Jake. Get a quick opinion from Epperson if you feel comfortable with it and don't want to miss out in case Don and I are wrong.
You're not wrong Steve...
This garbage was part of a huge sale of bogus Elvis on eBay 7 or 8 years ago by a California seller and UACC member with the handle of christinareading...
I've discussed "her" selling spree on eBay here in a past thread...I'm betting she sold upwards of 50 fake Elvis.
This is one of them...
