Top one (Zeppelin IV) is not authentic, IMO. Bottom one is good and a nice, large example.
Of these two, I believe the signed Presence is authentic. The In Through the Out Door is questionable. It could be authentic, but it has enough that’s “off” to concern me.
I agree. Doesn’t it seem strange how large these loops are?
The size size of the loop in Plant’s signature has changed a great deal over time. I have a very large, somewhat full signature from the early 90’s that has a big loop - much like these. For contrast, I have a smaller signature obtained in 2009 that has a much smaller, more oval-shaped loop. I wouldn’t base the opinion on authenticity solely on the loop in his signature.
I guess what I am trying to compare when I say the loop is big, is that the R is small in comparison. On your album, the loop is large, but so is the R. Awesome album by the way, wish I had something with these three signatures.
All the Plant signatures posted are authentic. His loop seems to get bigger when he signs a few and wants to get them over with!
Agree, all look authentic.
Richard, are you sure about the LZ IV signature at the very top? I have concerns about it. Especially the weird transition from the R to the rest of the signature. I’m also not comfortable with the shape of the R.
That was the one I had my most concerns with.
I do know what you mean my friend with the R and the rest, but I believe that is also good. I’ve seen Plant sign a lot of signatures on tour and this could be attributed to either how the album was placed when starting to sign, or the last of a bunch he was given to sign and wanted out!
