Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Eric K. Longo Dec 5. 15 Replies

I purchased a James Stewart autograph recently from Regan's Autographs (seems legit...anyone know anything about them?), and I was curious as to its authenticity. It seems to be an early signature,…Continue

"Like you Rfitzz I find it puzzling that he would have two different types of autographs. When you look at his more relaxed signatures on documents and photographs he makes the "J" then does the "immy" I believe what is happening…"

"Hi, The negative space and downward "shape" or "space" created by the "Ste" can be seen in many of those you posted, as well as the corresponding alignment of angles. I did not look at any stickers. "

"Hi Eric, I have been searching for more of a "rushed" vintage style but haven't found one yet (like a needle in a haystack). I agree that the "ST" seems to add credibility and that his later signature definitely changed to…"

"These appear relaxed/seated. Did you find any signed "IP ruched" such as the OP? I can not discount the "Ste" and all the relations in the overlay on the OP and Joe's. "

Rfitzz replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"Been doing a little more digging...  although there appears to be some similar characteristics with these vintage signatures to the OP, the "J" is worrisome to me.  Below find signatures from 1936, 1948, 1953, 1955 and…"

Joe W. replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"I just threw those two up because they were independently authenticated. As a reference. My personal thoughts is the OP is likely a genuine, early example. I actually owned a similar example in the past which I no longer have an image of. With that…"

"Here is an overlay for loops/slants and so on with the OP and one of Joe's examples:"

Rfitzz replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"Joe, are you confident in the authenticity of those examples ?  They certainly lend credibility to the OP but I am still somewhat skeptical..."

Eric K. Longo replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"I think its fine Joe. There are even observable similarities in the first two IP and the OP."

Joe W. replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"Here is another example."

Scott Paul replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"Completely understandable I thought the same thing first I looked at it he is very consistent with the straight "J" from at least 1940 on a contract onward.  I do recall seeing a looped "J" from an old album page that is…"

Joe W. replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"Here is an example which is more articulated although it's not a stretch to see some similar characteristics with the OP."

Rfitzz replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"I agree Joe and Scott, I may have jumped the gun because mine are definitely "later in life" signatures. However, having said that, I have seen many earlier signatures of his and I have not seen any with that style "connected"…"

Scott Paul replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"I have not studied Stewart that much but I have a couple contracts signed by he and Gloria for appearances on The Jack Benny Show.  From the late 1940s at least he was pretty consistent in how he made his "J" but it seems to me I saw…"
Dec 5
Joe W. replied to Sarah Rose Goldstein's discussion Jimmy Stewart: Authentic or Not?
"OK, I think we may be jumping the gun a bit saying this is not genuine. The OP appears to be an early signature; probably in the 1940's versus his signatures later in life. I think this has a decent chance of being an early, in person, somewhat…"
