Autograph samples

Please note: I do NOT authenticate autographs. These samples were provided
by collectors and dealers who had evidence to believe these are valid
signatures. Please contact me if you discover evidence to the contrary.

Please help by sending images of additional autographs, or
better images than those shown here. Scan them at high
resolution (about 300 dpi) with about one inch (2 cm) space around
the signature. Since handwriting changes with age,
please include the date of the autograph.
