My friend acquired this signed Sgt Pepper 's LP through an estate sale recently. I am quite skeptical when it comes to Autographed Beatles items, as there are many many fake/forged signatures out there.
I am by no means a professional, or am I skilled at analyzing the authenticity of autographs, but my friend needs some help.
My first initial thoughts on seeing this, is that these are incredibly fake. The pressing is an original US 1967, but otherwise I dont believe silver sharpies were commonplace in that day. And how common was it for John Lennon to sign with his face? I know he was usually one to write messages to fans.
Just seeking others opinions.

George's looks wrong. In most of his early signatures the second 'g' in George comes down farther, making the 'h' in Harrison not touch any of the letters in 'George'. George's signatures also usually end with pressure on the 'n' as well.
(The Sharpies we know came around in 1964.)
I am you as you are you as you are you and you are all together.

There a fake, here's why. To start, All we have to do is look at John's for proof:
John had 2 different types of autographs, here's his early type:
And here's his later type:
The autograph more resembles his later type, but has a dip into the J that the authentic one lacks, therefore you have a counterfiet.
Don't be sad though because even if it looks perfect, it could still be a forgery. For example, I used to work at a record store and every now and then, we used to forge autographs onto things, typically by using a sample on a piece of paper and carefully tracing it onto the item, for example, shortly after George Harrison died, me and my friend decided to put his autograph onto a copy of All Things Must Pass . Also, sometimes Mal and Neil would forge autographs.
