I am unable to find a match for these items as authentic. I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.
They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

I can only work on the Picassos within this question. The photos are quite small. Can I see a clear, regular size close-up of one of the COAs? That's what I need most at the moment. Most of the pictures are quite well-known Picasso images, but the sizes seem off to be authentic prints.

They are all different sizes
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 7 months ago.

I see. Can you get me a COA photo?

Can you upload the image in a larger format? This one becomes quite blurry when enlarged to be readable/translatable.
