David Lewis replied to Bruno Sánchez's discussion Help with Montgomery Clift autograph :)
"Bruno, This one looks much better. In my humble opinion it stands a good chance of being real. Too bad the ink was not darker."

David Lewis replied to Peter Tolotti's discussion William McKinley
"That appointment looks good. "
yesterday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Abbott and Costello - JSA LOA - Does this look good?
"Most times forgers will only do names, not inscriptions. ….In some instances secretaries or publicists will add names to preprinted signed photos. Other times I have seen celebrities sign names of the recipient on pre authentically signed…"

David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Abbott and Costello - JSA LOA - Does this look good?
"I have no exact date, but at lest by 1953 Costello was connecting his names together. In my humble opinion this looks good. Two different signing instruments would usually mean it was signed at different times. The signatures head in two different…"
Tuesday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Rod Serling - Twilight Zone
"Etienne, If you check the internet on Serling autographs bought and sold, you will find TLS's by Serling on letters from his home address with different secretary's initials. From what I have seen Serling signed legal documents one way and…"
Monday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Bogart / Bacall #2
"In my humble opinion the Bacall looks good. I have to wonder why, when there was enough space, Bogart never lifted the pencil when signing his last name. From the limited exemplars I have on Bogart, he lifted once or twice when signing his last…"
Monday
David Lewis replied to Michael chris's discussion Richard Burton early signature
"I doubt that is in person, but in my humble opinion it stands a good chance of being a late 40's - early 50's Burton autograph. Also on the internet right now, in the selling and sold, is a 1952 check and program that have very similar…"
Monday
David Lewis replied to Will McIntosh's discussion Bert Lahr
"In my humble opinion, that is no cowardly lion."
Sunday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Bogart / Bacall
"Etienne, You will have to  pay for a real  Bogart autograph, I am not one of the vultures wanting to take your money. I have told you, I do not have any Bogart autographs in my 40 year + collection. If the seller will not send an image of…"
Sunday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Bogart / Bacall
"Etienne, For your money, tell the seller, send the reverse photo….Today I had JSA 3rd party a 5 star Fleet Admiral Nimitz and Halsey and Marshall 8x10 photos…..Not to mention an I lost to  General Washington at Yorktown Charles…"
Sunday
David Lewis replied to G01ch's discussion Margot Robbie- Opinions?
"Go1ch, Don't be in a rush….slow down. On eBay you can see all the 3rd party Robbie's that are for sale and have been sold. Save the clear exemplars for your library. Over time you will familiarize yourself with her autograph and…"
Sunday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Bogart / Bacall
"Etienne, Ask the seller for an image of the reverse. A nice clear one. Look for the distortion and discoloration behind the Bogart photo….not to mention the Bacall. The Bogart and Bacall autographs overlap at the P and B. Since I don't…"
Sunday
David Lewis replied to G01ch's discussion Margot Robbie- Opinions?
"Up front, I have never collected her ink in person. That being said, The 3rd person authenticated Robbie autographs on eBay for sale and sold do not look like yours. In my humble opinion I do not think she signed this."
Sunday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Bogart / Bacall
"This looks like old ink on an old album page. The Bacall autograph looks right. By at least, on a 1955 contract she dropped the deep downstrokes on her a's in her signature. The downstroke on the Bacall A, looks like the Bacall photo was placed…"
Sunday
David Lewis replied to Etienne's discussion Paul Newman - Butch Cassidy SP
"Newman signed on borders and lite areas of the photos, staying off his body and co stars when possible.  To looks correct, In Best the bottom of the b is at an upward angle while the s is heading south, while the t has a short  top bar…"
