I am always suspicious of complete cast-signed items, especially when they are not inscribed, cast is not known for signings at events, or few authentic complete examples exist.  Fortunately, most of…Continue

Based on my review of the RR Auction Study and other examples in their archives, I have doubts about this item.  Based on the description of the "von Damm" secretarials, this would not likely have…Continue

beardog1 replied to A.C. Hatzis's discussion President Ronald Reagan or Helene von Damm? Thanks!
"I recently posted a similar question on another Reagan signed photo.  Mine was likely neither Reagan or von Damm.  However, the RR Auction signature study for Reagan and von Damm was very helpful.  I am very much an amateur, but you…"

"Thank you Taylor116.  I can often convince myself something looks "right" but this one did not feel right to me even with hope and optimism.  I appreciate your help on this item.  It helps me move on knowing it is not…"

"Thank you Joe.  I have read a lot about secretarials, mother-signed, or other-signed (like when one Beatle signed all signatures).  It was interesting to read the RR Auction signature study about "von Damm" signed items. …"

"I don't know if this will help or not. I did hear years ago that, early in Ron's acting career, his mother signed his fan mail. In those days it would likely be a fountain pen signature. The fact is, it is not Ron's handwriting and…"

"Definitely not Reagan IMO, doesn't look like it was signed by Nelle or a Von Damm either, I believe it to be an older forgery."

beardog1 replied to rob kunne's discussion just a hobby.
"Great example of "upcycling" and giving these quality frames a new life.  Love the displays.  Thanks for sharing.  Out of curiousity, where the horses in the frames prints or photos of beloved "family members"?"

"Thank you for the feedback, Jim.  Some of the elements of the signature aligned with the RR Auction study, but the "R"s don't seem to align with typical signature style.  Although there was one example from 1976 that looked…"

Ronald Reagan Signed Photo - Opinions Please

Based on my review of the RR Auction Study and other examples in their archives, I have doubts about this item.  Based on the description of the "von Damm" secretarials, this would not likely have been and does not appear to be a secretarial signature.  However, it does not look like an authentic Reagan signature either.  My biggest issue is the "R"s in both "Ronald" and "Reagan look atypical with only one exemplar from 1976 looking somewhat similar.  I do not have enough experience with other…See More

"Thanks Steve.  I have learned to be suspicious of complete cast-signed items.  Although I have found a few likely authentic examples online of the MASH cast (both original and later casts), I have found many more single signed items from…"

"Thank you. Remember, you needn't buy an autograph to get opinions. "Tuition" as it is called need not cost a penny. Just post something you've found and see what happens."

""... I also was concerned these each looked like newer ink on vintage but unaged paper...." Very important. Trust yourself. The Greenstreet looks uncomfortable IMO. See what others say."

Would love to have been able to meet Neil Armstrong (even though I know he stopped signing autographs later in life).
