Just wondering what you all think about this David Bowie currently on eBay. I'm not looking to purchase, just thought the price seemed somewhat low if it is authentic.

Hi Morgane, another thing was that it seemed a mix of years (albeit close together) and very self aware. Anyone else find the placement odd? Ink dispersal/weights?

Hi, Eric!

Now that you mention it, I saw something similar when comparing it to the exemplars, that parts of it matched different years. I wasn't sure that was a bad thing at the time but taking everything into consideration it seems suspect.

"...this was tough as I immediately thought fake - then compared it against genuine 87's and some either side (86/88) and I see various hybrids of this ebay one from those other years......" - MarkG

I agree. The initial single word response I rescinded was "Nope", but then looking again...those 82-86/87 hybrids I withdrew...but too many little things - I would not accept it and left it as above. I also felt it was a slick fake but that did not seem right considering it was 1980's and not my area so I removed that as well. I saw one thing leaning the wrong way, numerals seemingly convincing but also something there, some stuff looking a touch backwards and three things do not "sing" together as they should - but close.  Just not close enough for AML :) Sara, no one was 'right" or "wrong" - everyone saw something, as you posted. I pulled myself back also from "Nope" - but then followed my gut.

Edit - "...I agree. The initial single word response I rescinded was "Nope", but then looking again...those 82-86/87 hybrids I found...." 

I don't know where "withdrew" came from. And good eyes Morgane. When forgers are producing things like the below one must be suspicious:


Or worse yet, something like this:

Wow, this one looks good...what are the key things that tip you off?
