Fay Wray King Kong signed photo - Is this legit?

Started this discussion. Last reply by beardog1 Feb 21. 4 Replies

I had felt pretty confident this was authentic.  However, the more I examine it, the more uncertain I am.  Specifically, the "F" seems to be shaped more like a "7", the "W" has an odd loop, and the…Continue

"David - I have no expertise in Santana signatures but previously posted a likely authentic Santana item which may be helpful for comparison.  My example likely dated to around 1976.  Based on my limited knowledge and clear differences in…"

"It is nice to have friends who have vintage signatures.   The Jim Backus looks like authentic examples I have seen.  In looking at the second Natalie Schafer again, it appears she may have been writing on a challenging surface and/or…"

"Hi David.  I am a total novice but will share my observations. All five signatures look pretty good to me compared to likely authentic exemplars with a few atypical characteristics.  I would have the most confidence in the two Alan Hale…"

"beardog1, I posted "Gilligan's Island" autographs on this site in the last 24 hours. In my opinion all are real, but I am waiting for opinions. Comparer to yours."

"Sorry beardog1, In my humble opinion, not a fan. With my old eyes I see some contrast, and see what you point out yourself. She signed a lot thru her lifetime. Here are a few online exemplars of her autograph to compare to. I could not find my own."

I had felt pretty confident this was authentic.  However, the more I examine it, the more uncertain I am.  Specifically, the "F" seems to be shaped more like a "7", the "W" has an odd loop, and the "a"s in both names don't seem as loopy as likely authentic examples I had seen.  Also, she did not seem to use a thick pen/Sharpie very often.  I know she lived a long life and continued to sign for a long time but signature seems stronger than I might expect.Appreciate opinions and comments.  Thank…See More

"I am starting to develop an eye for red flags like type of pen, angle of signature, size of writing, etc.  Funny how you can be blind to something for so long but then cannot unsee it once it is pointed out.  Appreciate your help, Steve."
