I have recently purchased a Bonnie and Clyde wanted poster

Customer Question

Hello,I have recently purchased a Bonnie and Clyde wanted poster and I am looking to have it certified COA and to have its value appraised. I'm assuming that the poster will have to be mailed to an individual as well. I've also thought about bringing it to my local museum to see if they'd be able to help. I've included some scans of the poster. It is inside a plastic sleeve so the scanned images aren't as clear as they really are.

Hello

I hate to be the one to tell you this but, the posters you have are not authentic posters. Here is a link to a site about these fakes you can look at this for yourself if you like. I am only letting you know this because I do not want you to spend a lot of money getting this authenticated to find it is not real. Companies charge quite a bit to authenticate things like this:

Hello,

These have sold for $300 - $600 on today's market - even through known auction houses. This is mainly because buyer's thought they were purchasing an original wanted poster. Here are links for you to some that have sold in the past and their prices:
