Thank you.

On a first look, both the image and the signature look good. Please note I cannot officially authenticate this for you, that will require a physical inspection. But I can give you some additional information and some contacts to speak to.

What is your nearest metropolitan area?

Sincerely,

Kalispell Mt 59901 is the city I live in but it is very small. I have relatives in Seattle that may be willing to help

OK, I'm reaching out to a colleague at the premier auction house for this type of work. Let me get her preliminary impressions for you. It may take a day or two for her to get back to me.
