Here is my question, of uncertainty, I ask for your opinion, what do you think about this Michael Collins signed portrait, that's autograph as original rate?

I'm still unsure. Many signatures are always with "Michael" in the example only with "Mike."

Does anyone have experience with "Mike" and "Michael"? Thank you very much.

I have a very similar signed photo of Collins. Signed Mike Collins. I think he must have done quite a few like this at a signing. I have seen several others like this for sale at auction, all have the similar signature. It is not an official NASA litho but a high quality photo. Printed on Kodak professional paper with the brand on the back.

No. Too many variations of the signature as well as not having autopen characteristics.

I agree with the others that the signature looks good. Also, I can vouch for the seller who is very reliable.
