A friend of mine has asked for opinions on this Apollo 11 cover. He is not a member but I said I would gladly help.

I think he has a pretty good idea as to its authenticity (as have I) but he would welcome other opinions. Thanks in advance.

Can't tell for sure at this size, but it appears to be rubber stamp signatures.

Rubber stamp. There is no "flow" to the ink lines.

You immediately know something is wrong because the relative size and placement of the signatures are way off.

Thanks Steve. He and I both doubted their authenticity but I can understand his desire to know for sure.
