Possibly. The "coc" in the surname looks kind of odd but then the "k" looks good. Otherwise, it overall looks pretty good to me. Any backstory on it? Maybe he was distracted as he was finishing it up?
I would pass on this. Misspelled names don't do well in resale. Problem piece.
What if I can get it for £250
Good prices fade, bad graphs never change. His name is misspelled. You will always see that and it just gets worse over time. If you tried to sell this to me I would immediately say "...he misspelled his own name...?". Who is selling this? Who has opined it genuine? At best it appears uncomfortable, certainly atypical.At worst it may well be a forgery.
This is not one I’m comfortable with the authenticity of.
Many thanks. Hitchcook has now been sold ( not to me, though)
The autograph is atypical, regardless of the “c”.
