My brother bought a couple of Neal Armstrong autographs online a few years ago. Since I've informed him of all of the counterfeits out there, he'd like to know the best way to be able to authenticate them without spending money on a service to do this.

Even though his signatures came with COAs, I consider those suspect as anyone can print them out.

Where should he begin his research and what should he be considering along the way? Thanks!

The Neil Armstrong Autograph Study by Steve Zarelli is one of the best guides to Armstrong Autographs.

There is also an excellent study on Armstrong Autographs by the UACC.

The best way to authenticate them is to post images here and it costs nothing.

However, if you find that they're genuine and want a proper COA to keep with them then Steve Zarelli is the person to go to.
