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.

No autograph samples currently on file.

Please help by sending images of autographs.
Scan them at high resolution (about 300 dpi) with
about one inch (2 cm) space around the signature.
Handwriting changes with age, so please include the
date of the autograph.
