Look at eBay lots 171021297631 and 121092342952. Florian, to his credit, has marked them as possible Riser Fakes. What do people think about these?

I would be interesting in hearing further opinions, too!

As described they are from the Ulrich Loeffler collection and he accumulated them from all different sources. (He already identified them as fakes back decades ago.)

The Randolph cover actually has a remark on the backside by German space dealer Coelle saying he got it from Riser! The Lake Champlain does not have any further information but the postmarker actually looks handdrawn!

By the way, I also have the authentic Randolph on eBay and an authentic USS Lake Champlain in my online shop.

All times are CT (US)
