Default Immelmann Signature Study

Here is a nice comparison of Immelmann signatures that are being offered on 2 different dealer sites. The first signature is one on his Sanke card from 1916 and is used as the "baseline".

Some match the Sanke card but others, IMO, miss the mark.

Signatures on cards 5 & 6 most closely match the Sanke card and are from the same dealer. Interestingly the signature on the 4th card is from the same dealer as 5 & 6 but it does not match those signatures on 5 & 6. It does match card 2 which is from a different dealer. Card 2 & 3 are from the same dealer but do not look like matches to the Snake card signature or each other.

If I recall correctly, Immelmann was very frugal when it came to signing cards, sometimes asking for compensation.
