This has to be one of the worst autographs claiming to Eastwood's.

It actually says "signed by Clint Eastwood / Jeff Daniels," so possibly could be Daniels'? There's a slight resemblance when compared to another JD autograph I saw on Ebay, but not much. Certainly not Eastwood's.

Sorry everyone and thanks Agent.

You are quite correct, however the Eastwood signature still does not look the real deal.

Here's a blowup of it:





What about this one? Does it appear to be authentic (going for $175 on this site)?

The Black & White picture has a secretarial signature and the Colour one (included below) is 100 % authentic, however he does say the following "Note: Item may vary from actual photo/image shown" which would be a concern to me!!" 



Yes so I would buy it if that was the one I would recieve.


And the blow up signature above is crap!

I`ve had these photographs rattling around at home for a good number of years now and I was wondering if they are genuine autographs or if they are secretarial efforts.

I have scanned and cropped the photographs  to assist in the  identification of the "autographs" .





Either way, it will be interesting to find out which.

I look forward to your verdicts!

Thanks.

Davy

Hi Davy,

The first one is without a doubt authentic (a very nice example) and the second one is clearly a forgery in my opinion.  Neither is even close to being a secretarial.  I would happily purchase your first one!!  Actually if you donít mind I would like to see a full size scan of the first one.  Hope Iíve Made your Day!  :)

Cheers,

MM

Complete image of "genuine" autograph.




Would appreciate a little bit more information / suggestions on who would have been likely to have signed the other picture.  It did, in its defence, arrive at my door, 21 years ago, with a Hogs Breath Inn stamp on it complete with carmel postmark!!  Maybe it was one of the chefs!! ;D ;D

Forgot to mention.  YES, it was signed for me personally.  Not in person though (hence the slight doubt).  A reporter friend told me that she got Clint to sign it for me.

I kinda always thought she was winding me up!!!

I`ll have to bow in shame the next time I meet her. :-[

As for the second one, I donít remember seeing a secretarial like it.  I would have classed it as a forgery  :) I canít really tell from that scan, but it may even be a copy as well.  Whoever signed it IMO didnít want to sign too similarly to how Clint actually signs, maybe it was a chef at HBI  :) Perhaps Palooka may be able to shed some light on it.  I thought he may have said something about your first one.

PS.  Be careful posting large images of authentic autographs on forums as they can eventually appear on eBay or at the very least watermark them.  That is why I asked for the email!

Yep agree with Mr Malpaso - but then I usually do.

The second one there does look like someones first attempt at copying Clint's signature - I have not seen this "style" before.

Whatever you do - don't sell the White Hunter photo! You'll never get another one inscribed to you!

Hi Davy,

I tried to get some more information for you regarding the autographed photo you received from HBI.  I sent the image to someone I thought might know something about it, but unfortunately he never replied.

I still stand by the fact that it is definitely not authentic.


Cheers,

MM

PSA/DNA have been known to make mistakes...don't take their word for gospel truth.

CE stopped signing thru mail mid 80s & is getting htf these days....he usually only have time to scribble his name due to many people who wants his sig.

Eastwoodís autograph has always been in demand, that's why there are a large number of forgeries.  As for the ďscribblesĒ most of them if they are actually done by Eastwood could never be authenticated as such (most are that bad that they should never be sold), same with the alleged scribbles from many other contemporary celebrities.  Thatís why it is best to look for vintage Eastwood autographs.  As for PSA/DNA it has been well known for a long time that they are unreliable authenticators and I have posted that before, also part of the reason I donít take for granted much of what R&R Auction sells.

Thanks MM.

I hope, if and when you recieve a reply from your friend, you will post the findings here.  Not that I doubt your opinion one bit, I hasten to add,  it will just be very interesting to get to the bottom of this forgery.

I look forward to further feedback.

Thanks again MM.

Davy.
