"Hi Damats, When I asked how the Meet the Beatles back cover came out rough, over-enhanced, and with the text and autographs all the same shade of black, you said it was because you printed it out to enlarge them, took photos of it and cropped…"

"I just asked Jeff Mast: He didn't own it. He owned Dr. Gordon's "Thanks for the jabs" signed MTB, and he interviewed Louise Harrison regarding it. "

"Moderator's note: I wouldn't put anything past Antiquities, but please don't take as fact that the Beatles autographs in the original post came from them yet. I don't have a doubt in the world that they're forgeries, but…"

"Damats, I just realized: You probably didn't alter the photo. You took a photo of a fraudulent printed version of the album. That's why the signatures and text are in exactly the same ink! You've got to tell us where you photographed…"

"Actually, look at the "N" of New York, and you'll see different imperfections in the ink.  Damats, you discovered a completely copied forgery of Louise Harrison's MTB! Where did you photograph it?"

"Jeff Mast owned it at one time. I don't know if he bought it from It's Only Rock n Roll or not. He interviewed Louise Harrison regarding it in about 2011-12 as I recall."

"Please post the entire photo. If you cropped it without saving an original you could only crop one signature before you would lose the rest of it."

Autograph Live can be hard for new members to navigate sometimes. Post your Beatles autographs as a discussion here, as Ballroom mentioned, and you'll get a good number of responses:
