Could anyone help me authenticating these Nirvana autographs please?
This was found in a loft in Paris.
That is the only info I have.
I have also attached another picture of a record found at the same place and time which is also signed.
Any thoughts are welcome.
Thank you in advance!
The autographs look authentic to a number of people who I highly respect on Nirvana, although Dave Grohl's may not be period. But as far as I know, none of us have seen the albums in person. We know that you can tell if an autograph looks like a forgery from a photo, but you can't make sure it's genuine without inspecting it in person.
My concern isn't that they're necessarily forged, but that they may be copies of genuine autographs applied to the albums.
Here's an video on laser ink transfer paper and how to use it:
Here's an entire discussion posted by Seamus on McCartney High in the Clouds autographs he signed at book signings appearing on guitar pick guards, which I think may be transferred to them through the laser ink transfer method.
Read these when you have time and you may see why I'm concerned.
The LP came with a JSA cert, ask them if they saw it, I'll bet they did.
JSA approved it because the sigs look good, that is what they do. But nobody can tell me who wrote "For Darie." Iconic said it was "For Marie," which is it? Is it important that we know?
I think it is- I think whose handwriting that it is very important.
Has anyone else seen any Nirvana graphs coming out of France?
Yes, at least individual members. I can't say band-signed for sure, but there probably were. The were a good number of band-signed Nirvana sets signed in Europe, though. Including to one or more of our members.
