Any thoughts on this von Braun Cover? Seller seems to have quite a few covers listed.

Does that mean the covers are fake and the signatures are real or everything is bogus? Thanks.

The Riser covers have fake postmarks, seals, and autographs. The only real part is the embossed airmail envelopes that Riser used for his forgeries.

I do not know enough about Nebel or Oberth's signatures, but the von Braun is suspect to me.

In my opinion, the seller in question is a reputable seller who makes a good faith effort to sell authentic items. His primary focus is sports memorabilia, but it looks like he got fooled by a few items outside of his area of expertise. I contacted him and he quickly removed the Riser items.

Steve, I would suggest the seller relists the items but clearly mark them as Riser fakes. These are still worth selling and on a good day may bring more than you think.
