|Appraiser Comments:||Janis Joplin and Grace Slick signed ukelele. The signature appears to be authentic by sight examination of the image provided with the request for appraisal but an actual determination to authenticity cannot be made without a physical inspection. This is simply an appraisal and not an opinion of authentication. Since this item cannot be forensically inspected by this appraiser then the value stated is on the assumption that this is an authentic signature. All appraisals are based on the condition, uniqueness, history and current market for this item. An appraiser does not create the value of an item and merely provides their professional opinion of value which is often generated by a comparison study based on auction and retail sale prices. This certificate of appraisal is given subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, all of which are a part hereof unless expressly set aside in writing either on the pages of this certificate or by writing attached to the certificate signed by all parties concerned. Unless otherwise stated herein, this certificate is based only on the readily apparent identity of the item(s) appraised, and no further opinion nor guarantee of authenticity, genuineness, attribution or authorship is made. This certificate is made at the request of the party names for their private use. It is not an indication or certificate of title ownership. The value(s) expressed herein is based on the appraiser’s best judgment and opinion and is not a representation or warranty that the item(s) will realize that value if offered for sale at auction or otherwise. The value(s) expressed is based on current information on the date made and no opinion is hereby expressed as to any future value, nor, unless otherwise expressly stated, as to any past value. Information furnished by others is assumed to be reliable, but is not guaranteed by this appraising agent. We have over 30 years of experience in appraising and authenticating autographs and look at thousands of items each month. I am also trained in forensic handwriting and document examination and continue to reinforce my knowledge through continued study. In the uncommon event that there is a signature with which I or my associates are unfamiliar, we have access to other recognized experts as well as an extensive library of reference materials and archive of authentic signatures for comparison. We also update autograph values on a continued basis. Thank you for allowing me to appraise your collectible. I would appreciate any feedback you feel is relevant. Lon D. Strickler|
