Hi all. I got these Beatles autographs framed a few years ago. In comparing the framed piece with a picture of the autographs before they were framed, it’s unclear on whether it’s faded a bit or if the discrepancy is due to the camera shot and special glass that it’s behind (it’s the “good” UV glass/whatever the right terminology is, not the regular UV they typically try to own off).
what do you all think? And even if it did fade slightly, does that affect the value much at this current stage?
It appears to me it's the glass and photograph. See what others say.
The nature of this glass obscured the darkest darks - it sort of lowers the contrast and doesn't allow for full color saturation. That might be going on here. Second scan looks "speckly as a result IMO.
