Whoops they were actually really good reproductions on closer inspection. Phew, lucky!

And just to leave something related to the thread… One of my most prized finds. COA from both Tracks and Frank. Enlarger

The following people thank melb-guy for this post:

Generally speaking, it’s hard to tell.

Since their signatures are well known, you can tell if it’s a rank amateurish attempt at a copy just by putting these signatures side by side with real ones. But a gifted artist can forge any signature.

I would factor in how unique the document is that the signature is on. Is it a 6-page contract that would take a lot of work to forge? Or a picture of which there are hundreds.

When things are worth a fortune, there are more scientific ways of analyzing things (the ink, the paper,…).

Here, I would say that if you can get the items for an amount that you could afford to lose (say they turned out to be forged), go for it.

But don’t make a big financial sacrifice.

And as long as your father doesn’t try to re-sell them, he’ll always have the pleasure of “knowing” they are real – ‘coz maybe they are!


By the way, melb-guy, welcome! Stick around.

This is a nice attempt at Paul’s signature (I didn’t even notice the other ones at first, they hardly resemble the real thing at all), but the a is a dead giveaway that it’s fake. Paul’s a is very specific. There are a few other mistakes, but that one is the most obvious one. So far, the only fake ones that had me convinced were those done by the other Beatles, They had each other’s signatures down to near perfection.
