    Michael Wittmann signature?

    Here is an interesting one. Wittmann's spell at Junckerschule and locality coincides with his application for a subscription to a wartime Panzer publication. His father's address is given and the timeline is correct vis a vis his geographical whereabouts at the time.I have no dog in this hunt just curious gents.

    All comments appreciated

          For me, all the signatures ring alarm bells.

              The ink looks highly suspect.

                I agree, all signatures look like a mess.
                Most likely the blank document is real and was pimped up for $$$$

                  Kyle - I don't like this signature at all.

                  I have about 10 (?) original Wittmann signatures in my collection directly from the estate, incl. handwritten letters and Michel's personal notebook/diary.

                  Non look like this one.

                  Cheers from Chicago!

                  Markus.

                    Thanks all !!

                    Thanks gents I had no intention on bidding whatsoever but I know the controversy around Wittmann's signature fosters positive debate and reduces the chances of collectors being duped. Thanks for all your input gents I appreciate it.

                    Thanks Kyle

                      Did the family even live there? I thought Michael was from a farm?

                        Yes, agrarian family roots and birthplace in Vogelthal i.d.Opf . His father did begin work in Ingolstadt in 1932 and the Wittmann's were somewhat plagued by moves and financial difficulties as were most during this time. The family was a bit broken up as a result of needing to generate income. His brother Johann was a baker in Ingolstadt. This document appears to be dated 1942. The images save one are ridiculously small. As the OP stated coinciding with M.Wittmann's attendance at Junkerschule.
