It looks like the Commanding Officer's signature is either pre-printed or machine signed. I think both of the Ed White signatures look good, and those are what gives these covers real value.

It appears that the two may have been signed at different times...the slight variation in the "E" and the closed "H" in the first example, as well as a thicker point marker being used.

I think White's signature is one of the harder ones for someone to fake given his characteristic long, flowing loops in the "E", but others can certainly chime in here.

Both White signatures look good; not autopens.

Thanks everyone for your help. I have quite a few autographs. I am putting a few more autographs in the "Opinions and Advice" area if anyone wants to look at those. Three Charles Conrad and one Gordon Cooper from GT-5.
