Lou is easy to fake, as he was a very lazy signer. This looks a little sharp, IMO. I’d have to trust the seller quite a bit to move on this.
Lou is very difficult to authenticate. Good provenance is essential these days.
As Kai says, he was a lazy signer and is easy to fake. There was also a good deal of variety in his genuine signature.
I got him IP in 1992, and mine wasn’t a close match to the Transformer LP you’re considering. The “R” in Reed is atypical, as is the “D” at the end. And the “L” in Lou is a little too sharp and angled for my liking. That said, I have seen a genuine example from 2000 where the “R” in Reed is similar to the one here.
Having lost my 1992 IP in a flood, I’m in the market for a genuine Lou autograph myself, but I’m looking privately to trusted, longtime collectors, to help fill that gap. This Transformer isn’t something I would consider for myself.
Thanks Kai and Steve. Your opinions are appreciated. I will pass on this one as well.
i did lou a ton of times and dont love it
