This looks counterfeit. I can't tell from the other pictures.

 

:winnah:

 

There's no moire pattern in the genuine copies.

From the pictures - especially when looking at my real copy - it was clear at least one was fake of the two.

 

The enlarged version is another good tell; thanks for that info.

 

I told the seller they were most likely fake and he had already sold them to someone else. Doubt he told the new owner about their legitimacy.

Found this in a dollar bin about a year ago, obviously it could use a press.

Here are some pictures of mine that may help. I have a 1st print and counterfeit.

 

Here they are side by side (real on the left, counterfeit on the right):

Here they are on top of each other. Notice the "Volume One" logo is higher on the counterfeit and at the same time "Linsner" is lower at the bottom.

Also, the counterfeit is printed darker inside the book. Here are some examples:

These are great photos, thanks for sharing (thumbs u

Thanks!  I actually added the Yvonne Craig '66 Batman statue to this display too.  Can't wait for my new Purgatori statue to arrive too! :D

My one-and-only item that might be of interest in this thread.  I really do need to get it framed one of these years:

I was going to ask this in the OA forum but I have a feeling there is more CFD knowledge here.

I know Linsner keeps churning out commissions but has he ever released an original Cry for Dawn cover? Or has he held onto that run of art?

I don't think any Cry for Dawn covers have left his ownership.

I made a significant offer (5 figures) at one point for one of them, and he didn't accept.

Thanks Jay, interesting.  Maybe one day he’ll let one go.  I can’t even guess at what they would go for.

Looking to get the full set in 9.8 slabs - super tough to find them so decided to send a bunch in to get graded. Still need quite a few, if you have any and are willing to sell or trade please let me know. Special thanks to @NamesJay for selling me a stack of 9.8s. Pics of what I have in slabs below.

#7 2nd printing letterbox will be the hardest one to find. I don't think any have reached 9.8 on the census.

#5 2nd printing will also be a beast to find.
