I'd enjoy hearing feedback on this topic. Let's say it's a very rare signer whom you've searched far and wide for. You find them....and the piece is laminated (could be an album page, a handwritten letter, etc.).
What would you do? Buy it for it's significance and your desire to have something from them? Pass on it because of the lamination? Offer less than what an unlaminated piece might be worth?
Also, I'm wondering if the laminate affects the ability to authenticate a signature, the same way as being in a plastic sleeve or framed under glass would?
Does lamination matter? Why or why not?
