Default Definitely pre-war not baseball but anyway...who made this ink?

How about this ink quality for 1400 years old?

And while you're purchasing a lovely and rare Islamic artifact for your man-cave, don't forget to pick up a few women's tall and ankle boots they offer, as well!

At 1.2 million dollars they can afford a little extra testing. Probably not a Bic....

My 10.00 dollar offer was refused.
Might bump it a little.

I wonder if the Minister of Culture used JSA as their authenticating agent? Can anyone read Farsi? I wonder what the cert says.... probably something like this..."the authenticating agent indicates that in his opinion, it looks to be a real Prophet Muhammad signature, no guarantees it's authentic, but it looks real."

One problem is that Muhammad was illiterate.

That is apparently a matter of some debate.

Not a great source, but there are other letters out there, and at least according to the supposed translation this is among the known ones. The picture shown isn't a match to the fragement shown in the auction.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhamm...heads_of_state


There is a long scholarly work that would indicate that all these letters were discovered within the last 200 years, and that they are probably old forgeries.

If it is actually a few centuries old, the ink not fading doesn't surprise me. It would have been carbon(Maybe charcoal? ) mixed with some sort of binder. That's been used for millennia, and is still made. http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/disco...-on-indian-ink
