FREDDIE MERCURY SIGNATURES: Looking for those that really know

There are those on this page that have really studied and seem to know a real Freddie Mercury signature from a fake one, secretarial one, roadie, PA, etc..... 

Most of you know my story on how I acquired these three autographs. For those that do not, you can re-read how I acquired them at

I still have no proof that they actually were signed by Freddie Mercury, but do have a question, especially aimed at those that really have a history and a study on what is and is not a real Freddie Mercury signature. 

ALSO, there is a COMP that is going around the internet that when it was sent to me, there were those that said its a slam dunk comparable that supports my three FM's as being real as well. I need much more evidence, either way, than just 1 comparable. I am trying to stay neutral on how I feel of my 3 signatures as I continue to research from those who really may know.

THOSE that really know a FM signature, can you please post what it is about the signatures of mine that differ from a real FM signature and/or view this comp and see if it offers any comparison/support of authenticity at all.

Cheers, Thank You.............

  1. Innuendo is the member to ask. Put a comment in his profile with a link to this blog and he’ll probably get to it same day.

Hi Stephen. The comparable Innuendo signature is brilliant. Unfortunately, it also shares no similarities to the items you have. I'll be back with photos to compare.

Here's an example. The signature in red is genuine, signed in 1991 and comes direct from someone who got from Freddie themselves (worked for him). As you can see, when comparing the dedication and signature...from the flow (how each letter is connected) to the letter shapes, they don't match and aren't from the same hand. This is not a case of being rushed.

Here's another example. You're is on top, of course while a genuine late 80s is shown below it. Again, the description in yours doesn't match the hand of the genuine at all. It shares no similarities from the flow to the letter shapes and again, this isn't down to be rushed.

And to compare a third time. This is a genuine late 80s Freddie next to your item. Firstly, the F in your item stopped and looks to have been reconnected with the R in Freddie using a marker that seems to be new, so I don't think it was down to the marker not producing enough ink. That's not something you see in genuine Freddie signatures. 9 times out of 10, it means hesitation. Secondly, compare the Ms on yours and this Freddie. The Y as well. And we still see the same flow and letter shape issues here that we saw on the others. Unfortunately, it was not Freddie Mercury who signed your items.
