The ones on popsike defiantly look suspicious. I wish people who knew they had real ones could post pics here. I’d like to compare what I have to those. I know the nice person above has posted theirs and there are some simiaties to the one I have. The unknown pleasures signed example was obtained by an actual appraiser on Antiques Roadshow or something like that. This signature and mine look very similar.

Well, one thing is for sure. If thee are all real then Ian didn’t really have a distinct signature. Looks like it changed a lot. Obviously, there are probably a lot of variables that played into why that happened.

I could share my obtained sig.,which i know is a definate,but something holds me back,as a wise member reminded me of this could be mis-used....so,dunno if i even could scan it properly but would share with trustworthy members.
Ps:ebay sigs are hard to none in trust,imho

I know... it took me a long while to pull the trigger. I just really wanted one and had been looking for 15 years.

Thanks! Yeah, any help would be appreciated. This group seems to be full of very nice people. I’ve enjoyed it so far all the way from Chicago.

What makes it hard for me to believe this sig is genuine is the straight line underneath. Such a display of self confindence doesn't seem typical of someone like Ian (at least, that's what I think). A signature forger however wouldn't hesitate to emphasize the 'authenticity' of this by underlining it.
