    Pretty sure that's genuine Jamie - the 'D' is always the giveaway and that looks spot on in my opinion.

    Thanks very much for your input there Andy - always appreciated! -{

    I do know what you mean by the 'D' always being a giveaway, but for me on this one, the 'T' left me a bit perplexed to say the least! :))

    Judi is a fantastic signer TTM & also IP (so I hear.)

    UNBELIEVABLY fantastic TTM! She even sends personalized authentics after emailed requests.

    I met her IP at the NYC premiere of 'NINE', and couldn't have been nicer. Imagine my excitement when I saw that the signature looked exactly like my TTM success... She has a very distinct signature.

    Do any of you guys have any idea how rare Anouska Hemphill's autograph is?

    I have a signed photo of her, and just wanted to know if she is highly sought after?

    Anoushka Hempel, now Lady Weinberg, is VERY rare and, as far as I know, hasn't signed anything in decades. I've only seen signed photos such as yours, and an album page I have, but I'm sure these date back to her film and TV days in the 60s and early 70s.

    I hope this comes thru clearly. It's dated Dec. 1975.

    Thanks for your help there Steve, very good of you. :)

    I hadn't realised that she has signed nothing since her acting days back in the 60s & 70s - although that may explain why I got nothing back from her after writing to her via her Hotel a few years ago! Your scan looks very similar to mine, so I am confident that mine is genuine.

    I don't suppose anyone knows anything about getting Maryam D'Abo TTM? I know Jeroen Krabbe is quite reliable, and I'd love to have both their autos on an 8x10 print I have of TLD Japanese one sheet.

    Believe it or not, I'd likely rank TLD as my second favourite Bond film.
  • Tilly Masterson 007Tilly Masterson 007 UKPosts: 1,474MI6 Agent
    You will most probably get D'abo TTM, I have every time I have written to her.

    Be prepared to wait a while though, she's not the quickest at responding but she does sign TTM as far as I know.

    Just curious which one of these addresses is the best for her?

    Thanks again.
  • Tilly Masterson 007Tilly Masterson 007 UKPosts: 1,474MI6 Agent
    No problem, your probably best to send a photo for her to sign too.

    I think I know where the Anthony Dawson autograph that is being discussed is located.

    It was part of a large autograph collection, recently purchased.

    What do you think it is worth?

    Great! Can you tell us where you think you might have seen it?

    I think personally, and this is an estimate due to not having any description of material it is signed on, condition & if it's personalized etc - so I would estimate around £250 - £390 for it.

    Pfffft!! :)) :)) :))

    They are all most definetaly fake mate, they are a disgrace of a 'fake', so obvious (don't mean that about you in a patronising way) just that the guy selling it obviously thinks we're so gullible to believe that they are real. 8-)

    Tell him where to stick his $200!! :))

    3 Connery autographs with the motive, that all fakers are using:

    Does anybody know this seller and are the autos authentic?

    To be honest, at a first glance that Connery signature looks authentic because Connery's signature these days is becoming more 'sloppy' & rushed, hence why thinking this autograph was authentic at a first glance.

    But, upon comparing this signature to other genuine examples of his, it doesn't IMO look real I'm sorry to say. :#

    You often find that the 'fakers' who sell these autographs do tend to use sharpie pens, which does make it more hard to determine as in person the majority of collectors do ask them to sign using a sharpie therefore making it difficult to decipher if it is a 'good' forgery.

    I've never heard of that seller & looking at their other Bond signatures, alarm bells started ringing as all of them are most definetaly fakes. 8-) :v
  • gripgrip Posts: 14MI6 Agent
    In my opinion the seller only has 3 authentic Connery signatures for sale. The two cheques and the contract. None of the others look good to me. The prices are also very, very high.

    Connery's signature is not exactly a rare commodity these days due to the amount of books/bookplates he has signed recently. An authentic 8 x 10 Bond shot however is very rare indeed. Even a certain seller, considered by many to be very reputable, has far too high a turnover in 8 x 10 Connery signed Bond shots for my liking no matter how authentic they may look. Firstly, Connery doesn't like to sign autographs full stop unless for charity or to help sell a book as he doesn't like the idea of people making a profit off of his signature. On top of that, he despises the whole 'Bond' thing so getting him to sign Bond shots is next to impossible. I know many people who have been refused in person.

    I think there are going to be many, many people who have purchased the majority of their 8 x 10 Bond collections from one particular source who are going to be very disappointed in years to come. Obviously I cannot name names here for legal reasons.

    The best advice I can give is to stick with buying signed documents. Cheques, hand written letters, book signings or contracts are your best bet.

    What do we reckon to this Maryam D'abo signed shot?

    I know what I think of it!

    Check out this little collection! The first thing that grabbed me was the price (FAR, FAR, FAR too high!) , but secondly the autographs themselves. Whilst most of the girls and the villains look genuine, I dont consider any of the Bond's are real. The Timothy Dalton one is simply awful.

  • Tilly Masterson 007Tilly Masterson 007 UKPosts: 1,474MI6 Agent
    You're absolutely right Andy, firstly the price is way way way exaggerated as you say (who on earth in their right mind is going to pay nearly £2,500 for an autograph lot?) 8-)

    To be honest, I'd take the entire lot there with a pinch of salt and exercise extreme caution certainly around the Bond actors signatures............don't get me started on that Dalton signature as you say, utter b*ll*cks!! :))

    Does this Connery look real to you? I am struggling with this one....

    That Connery is laughable in my opinion, it's as fake as a jokeshop toy! :))

    That's what I thought too....but second opinions always help!

    I would like your expert opinion on these two Connery autographs. Do you think they are authentic based on my photos? Thanks for all thoughts and opinions!

    Hi big D,

    I am afraid they are not genuine. The "Sean" and "connery" are never attached together and he has never signed in such a fashion. Good luck with your collecting!
