Those forgeries on that image have been mass-produced in the thousands.

Laughable crap.
Thank you, I appreciate it, that helps.

Youll have a better chance if you drop the bad attitude and focus on the free help you are getting as opposed to perceived slights. My guess is that you will have to buy a few forgeries in order to learn anything.

For me anyway, The "T" in Ted is too tall, and the bottom of the "W" is too high in comparison to the other letters.

On the Mantle, the top of the "k" is too rounded; it, in my view, should be more "flat"

From the beginning of this thread I’ve said nothing but thank you’s to everyone.

I wasn’t rude to you was just saying that I was hoping to learn from my mistake and have said thank you to everyone who has tried to help.

"Learning" autographs is not easy and it doesn't happen overnight.

It's all about acquiring an "eye."

I understand, but I can’t learn without asking. The acquiring an eye does make sense, just trying to learn what else to look for.

If you, on a daily basis, study authentic Mantle autographs, your "eye" will discover what to look for.

I’ve been trying to do this on google, and will continue to. I was suspicious of the original piece I posted about because of the hologram and it just seemed too clean and mass produced.

What I couldn’t tell was how to spot the forged signatures themselves.

I’ve lurked on here for years. I think this board is fantastic and people spending their own time to prevent others from being taken advantage of is awesome, especially with all the bad things the internet is used for.

Chris, you should provide the link to the common Mantle fake styles on AML. Itís a good learning tool.

(Iíd do it myself but Iím on my phone and canít find it. )
