Fay Wray King Kong signed photo - Is this legit?

Started this discussion. Last reply by beardog1 Feb 21. 4 Replies

I had felt pretty confident this was authentic.  However, the more I examine it, the more uncertain I am.  Specifically, the "F" seems to be shaped more like a "7", the "W" has an odd loop, and the…Continue

"PayPal provides the seller a chance to make their case.  However, JPC apparently did not respond to PayPal's request.  I agree it is not JPC's fault that Van Morrison and his representatives misrepresented these…"

"Hi Greg.  Short answer is PayPal issued full refund of purchase price and initial shipping without requiring the item be returned. In my direct communications with JPC, I asked for a full refund including initial purchase and shipping PLUS a…"
