J.K. ROWLING HELP PLEASE!

Post by mymymy »

I recieved this TTM today. I have no doubt its authentic but someone said it was an autopen. You can see biro marks on reverse, it has differences to similar autos and correct me if im wrong but I don't think autopens have characteristics such as the loop of the 'J' being fainter than the rest of the sig due to the speed of signing the pen didnt make full contact with the photo.

Please help. Thank you.

Its signed in biro, right? If an autopen machine used a biro pen, the ink flow would be perfectly steady all the way through. Also yours have tails at the end, autopen machines cannot replicate that. Its 100% handsigned.

That only leaves authentic/secretarial to choose from, but they look pretty good to me. Although Ive never made any sense of the "Too busy to sign" letter accompanying a signed postcard, doesnt make sense.

The only reason Ive held off on sending to her is because 99% of successes are failures, and I dont want to waste my stamps lol.

Thanks, yes it is biro or other ball point pen. Doubt its a sec otherwise surely everyone would get one, plus they match her IP's.

I think the PP letter remains the same for everyone (although ocassionally edited) and everynow and then ms Rowling signs a few cards and they are randomly put in envelopes.

I think somebody should try and contact Ms. Rowling's secretary and ask about the authenticity.

Thanks jasonw, I knew it was authentic.

I sometimes feel when someone gets a fairly rare authentic TTM half of the people cant be happy for that person and just feel the need to question it to make them feel bad. Just my personal observation, sorry if it is no true.

ps. I dont think its a good idea to ask the secretary re authenticity, its just not appropriatte plus i reckon they dont even read the letters

mymymy, don't take this the wrong way, but wishing it were authentic doesn't make it so! Even if half the people here ARE happy for you. If anyone could get their hands on the article in Autograph Collector regarding these JKRo signatures and scan it, it would be great.

If the article states its autopenned, then the article is wrong, autopens cannot creat an autograph like this one. Like Ive already said, its handsigned, by who can be debated, but it IS handsigned.

I find it hard we're even using Autograph Collector as a reputeable argument anyway, aren't these the same people that did an article proclaming Pacino's (or De Niro, I forget which) TTMs were legit, but in fact was just done for publicity? :roll:

I have no knowledge of their reputability. I was simply interested in the article when another member of this board mentioned it exists.
