COMES WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY BY ANDREAS WIEMER HISTORICAL AUTOGRAPHS. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
I started collecting autographs of famous personalities as a teenager in 1985. During the last 15 years I’m specialized in buying and selling rare historical autographs, documents and manuscripts. My large reference library includes all the standard works with more than 100 books on the subject. I’m a member of all major autograph organizations (PADA - Professional Autograph Dealers Association, Manuscript Society and so on) and the author of several published articles and reference books incl. the standard works: “John F. Kennedy – autograph study” and “Presidents of the United States – AUTOPEN GUIDE”. My slogan has always been: "Think inversely". Before you purchase an autograph you should think along the lines that it is not genuine, then do your research hoping to prove otherwise.
