In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

I already sent you the size. It isn't in a frame. I believe the original owner ( who received said pic from T. Butterworth) gave it to someone else and now I have it. Will get grandspn to take pic of it, front and back

Thank you for the image. There is one picture of the front of the photo of Magre, at your convenience, please also add an image of the backside so I can see the inscription.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
both images are there and they have been there for a couple of days!
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are both still there, so what's up?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.


Only one image of the front is visible to me here. I will opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone knows the answer, they will respond to you here. You do not need to re-post your question.
