Always beware of Elvis autographs signed with gold or silver paint “felt” pens as these pens did not go on sale until after Elvis’ death. Whenever considering buying an Elvis autograph, please insist on the history and background of how the owner came by the autograph. Always ask if Elvis signed the item in person. It is a well know fact that during the 1970’s many fans gave the members of the Memphis Mafia items to be signed at Elvis concerts or at the Graceland Gates. These minders have since admitted that they faked hundreds of Elvis signature and signed most of the items themselves. The history holds true for fans that sent requests for autographs by mail to Graceland. Elvis’ secretaries openly addmitted that she forged Elvis signature on many occasions.
Another issue is the dreaded autopen… which was used when fans sent requests for Elvis autographs in the mail to Graceland. So what is an autopen? An autopen or signing machine is a device used for the automatic signing of a signature or autograph. Many celebrities, politicians and public figures receive hundreds of letters a day, many of which request a personal reply; this leads to a situation in which either the individual must artificially reproduce their signature by a machine. So how can you recognise a autopen signature… the distinct characteristic is that the autopen always starts the first letter with a dot.
