I'd love to get some feedback on this.  I purchased this a couple of years ago on EBAY from a seller based in England.  Although he dealt almost exlusively with Iron Maiden items, he also had a few vinyl records that he had picked up several years ago at a Car Boot sale (my understanding is that this is the British version of a flea market).  One of the albums was a British version of Pink Floyd Meddle in near perfect condition.  As he was going through the album to check the condition, he found this aged, brownish piece of paper with 4 signatures on it.  He admitted to knowing next to nothing about Pink Floyd and in fact had this listed with his other Iron Maiden items.  As Pink Floyd has been an absolute favorite of mine for years, I decided to take a chance on it and the price was right even if the signatures were not authentic.  The paper is about 9"x10.5".  It has been on someones wall as the 4 pinholes in the corner would indicate, and the signatures have faded a bit. Nonetheless, its a pretty cool piece if it is indeed legit.

I hate to say it, but I don't think your set is genuine.

Yeah, they don't look good. I mean, there's a possibility...if they were signed in the early days, but...I seriously doubt it.

Thanks for the comments. To me the Gilmour and Waters looked diiferent than anything I have ever seen and I thought that was odd. I will say this, it is very old, the paper is practically falling apart and has a musty smell about it, so I had held out some hope that perhaps these were indeed early signatures. Also the fact that the sigs are on this crappy, cut out, folded paper, I thought why fake on that? Anyway, it was cheap and I got a nice clean copy of Meddle on vinyl, so what the hell!

When i compare the A in Mason (nick) and the A in Waters (Roger), it appears they were signed by the same person, as the formation looks identical.

Unfortunately this is a forgery, IMO. Not authentic.

I'm afraid signed by the same person.The d on David and the r on roger and the r on Richard are identical in terms of style and flow.
