I have two (hopefully) signed Nixon pieces I'm hoping someone can share their thoughts on. First is a business card I received from Nixon in the late-80's or early-90's.

Second is a response my mom got in the late-60's or early-70's while Nixon was in office to a question about Vietnam.

What say ye???

My guess is the business card is real but the other piece is secretarial/autopen.

Not liking either. The letter is obviously an autopen, but that business card seems forced. Certainly not liking the flow of the "N" in Nixon.

I believe Nixon was at that location from 1988 until his death in 1994. A PSA authenticated version of this business card is below.

Well he said he got the card from Nixon himself which rules out a forgery.

To be clear, was via mail to that address. So doubtful a forgery...only secretarial or autopen. I think it's real.

I've never seen a Nixon signature where he put a loop in the base on the N. That's what is giving me a poor vibe.
