I took a chance on this item based off what appeared, from a distance, to be a legit June Carter sig, hoping that the Cash would be an authentic anomaly.
Upon closer inspection, it seems as if the "r" is missing on Carter, which makes me wonder if this is a forged Carter?
This truly is an item for Bill Miller or Roger to opine on..It's going to take a great understanding of Johnny and June's early signatures to render an expert opinion on this item.
Thanks, Brandon. Mr. Miller kindly gave it the thumbs down for me already. It's the June Carter sig that trips me up. Perhaps hers is real and somebody tried to sweeten the deal by faking Johnny's? Or is it just an excellent June Carter forgery? It really looks the the "r" is missing from her last name and i can't imagine her doing that...
I was afraid of that, but he is the expert so I couldn't say for 100% certainty.
Who else has signed it. I would say the Luther Perkins is good and would sure like to know what makes the Cash a thumbs down. I have in persons from the early 60s that look like yours.
