Hi Everyone!I just recently acquired a Russian Red Star newspaper from 16 April 1961. From what I can tell the newspaper seems to be legit, however, the signature seems to be a pretty obvious fake. Every other Gagarin signature seems to nail the top of the "T" and it was also dated the day prior. (Don't worry, I only paid $20 since I was more interested in just having a period paper.)  Can anyone lend any further analysis on the signature or maybe the value/legitimacy of the paper as a…See More
