Have Antique Repair Questions? Ask an Antique Appraiser
Hi and thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I didn't think it was that long. I have not purchased the photo yet, but planned to. I wanted to see what an expert said. I appreciate and value your expertise. You said there was something slightly "off" with the signature. What do you mean by that or what do you think it is? Is it that her signature has changed like you said or is a "natural variation?" Thanks again for all your advice.
Thanks again for your advice. I am thinking I'm going to make an offer on it. I know that there are a lot of fakes and copies out there. I think having something from Earhart for my autograph collection would be finding one of my holy grails. I'm a big Earhart fan not for what she did for advancing the rights of women, but what she did for showing how great we are as a people and that in America you can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it.
I know you said no need to reply, but I just wanted to thank you once again. I will gladly keep you in the loop and will come to you with any future questions. As I said before I like to collect autographs, but don't buy them that often as I am somewhat picky.
Amelia is one of my top three favorite historical figures the other two are George Washington and Scott Joplin. Washington for his heart and courage and Joplin because I am a piano player and he was one of the first composers I studied in great detail. Those three would be the ones I'd most like to meet.
Again, thank you for your advice. You treated me as a friend and not as another customer and for that I am ever grateful. I will keep you posted on the Amelia item.
Thanks for everything,
