I'm just moving house and have been cataloguing my vinyl collection for the move - DISCOGS is GREAT!
Anyway, I have over 100 prince collectibles on vinyl and had forgotten I bought a fully autographed Mountains US 12" in 1986.
I have a cert of authenticity, which I will now dig out.. but in the interim, I'd like views to confirm its authenticity. Looking around on the web now, it seems right?
If I recall (nearly 30 yrs ago!) I paid quite a bit for it.
COA to follow.
Plus I have another, which I'll photograph in a moment - but bought from someone who worked at a record station - which I'm less sure about... that's to follow..
Thanks for any input!
I am currently studying your other Prince autograph in more detail. AT first it looked off, but i need more time on it. This one i am pretty confident on though, and although it is far better than the average forgery in some aspects, i believe it is a forgery. There are numerous things wrong with it. I dont know about the other autographs on the piece, but the Prince i am pretty certain is bad. The P is actually done quite well compared to most forgeries, but after that, it really falls apart. Just a few things that really make it stand out to me is the R formation, and the E formation. They are all wrong in my opinion.
Wait for more to chime in, but i am pretty confident that the Prince is bad.
But ill focus on the other one now and let you know if i can come up with an opinion
Here is an example of a typical Prince signature, as it relates to how he formed his R's and E's.
Both not good -- sorry
On the "other" one I posted, Carl, you showed at the bottom, a full Prince Rogers Nelson, which, to me does look like the Prince on this one.
I think on some of the record store events, the signature is done that quickly, it all becomes a squiggle.
This is more like some of the signatures Ive seen, rather than autographs (if you know what I mean:-))
There's a signature cut for sale which looks similar.. tho not identical.
Appreciate your input. Thanks for taking the time.
I would have to agree with Carl and Bruce.
Both sigs you have posted don´t look right to me.
You should send both of your Prince to Roger Epperson for a quick opinion. Go to his website and submit it.
Looks no good in my opinion.
Neither does the signed Lovesexy promopic that Carl Ryan provided.
