If you’re interested in autographs, you probably want to add a few presidential signatures to your collection. In this video, the speaker shows viewers different examples of Abraham Lincoln’s signature; and then reveals that they’re all fake except for one! You’ll learn about signs that indicate forgeries, including ink that looks too washed out and paper that is wrong for the era (and has been prematurely aged in some cases).
In addition, like many people who write a great deal, Abraham Lincoln did not have beautiful handwriting. In many of the forgeries, however, the writing looks as though someone used a ruler to separate the lines of text.
