i bought that framed Photograph seven years ago from the son of the actual owner in Vienna.

the signature is hand written but is it genuine Elvis ? does someone have knowledge of that kind of framed photos from Germany ?

it would be of great help, thank you :)

Sorry, this does not look real to me. Possibly one of the Hans Baker forgeries. He was a well known Elvis forger and a lot have fooled people. The stamped/printed army numbers on the back look like something he did a lot.

"the stamped/printed army numbers on the back look like something he did a lot" -

he did a lot ?? Richard that i wanted to learn from my post: are such stamped/framed items known and where can i see them ?? i searched the net several times but without success. if someone "did a lot like something" as you say i should find at least ONE !?

Sorry, not real and I dont think a Hans forgery.  He was better than this!  He fooled the experts.  Cant see this one fooling anyone.

Agree Steve - Hans was way better than that.. unfortunately.  


thanks for your thoughts, Richard and Steve. anyone else with different ideas regarding this item ??

of course i know there are high numbers of forgeries around but it's just strange to believe Elvis's fanmail from Germany has been handled that way (with a framed but forged signed photography). 

Poor quality drawn signature IMO.

Hey guys,

I guess I can help a little on the army stamp issue. I have been an Elvis collector for years and specialised a little on his autographs. On several items I own from his military era, he used a stamp to mark his personal belongings or even autographed postcards.

You can see a photo of this stamp that he often used together with an "E.A.P." stamp.

So taking into account that this one is real, I hope it helps to disclose this autograph as a fake - together with the strange signature.

Kind regards


PS: I have not been active here for a long while due to many reasons (too busy...)
