I would like a few opinions on this Deke Slayton signature - a fellow cS'er has raised concerns with it and I want to get some more opinions.

The signature may be just slightly atypical, but I believe is fully authentic.

This is not typical of the Slayton signatures I have and I wonder if it is a secretarial.

I don't think it's a secretarial... it's just too close a match to his authentic autograph for me to think any aide could be that good at reproducing it on such a sporadic basis (I sure haven't seen enough like it to suggest any kind of pattern, such as with Shepard).
