"1. The 'To Julian' handwriting isn't right. 2. Like you say, it's too unhurried. John usually wrote fast and rushed. 3. It's a 70s signature on a 60s photo. Big red flag."

Beatle George Signed Photo Selling as Genuine

This morning I was reviewing upcoming Detroit estate sales for this weekend and found one with many wonderful Beatle items up for grabs, including some signed.Most everything looked legit except George's signature, which immediately jumped out as junk. I wrote the company handling the sale to give them a heads up. Of course, they responded that most of the signatures have COAs but would welcome input to the contrary. I asked him to take a snap of the COA, which he kindly did. For your perusal…See More
