I noticed there are 2 different types of SK signature on Full Dark No Stars, the Scribner HC: one that I have is with a kind of an additonal REVERSE S after SK full signature. Other copies of this specific one offered on eBay simply lack it. Why is that?
ALL sellers/holders claim SK signed it on the one-signing event at RiverRun Bookstore,Portsmouth,NH.
Any idea, fellows? What of a kind you have?

Do you have photos of the two signatures in question?

Without seeing the signatures, I think mosheprigan means the "squiggle" that King occasionally puts after his signature. I've seen both, and it doesn't seem to indicate anything.

Here are the 3 sigs in question, back to back for easy analysis. The 1st one is pretty blurry but the other two are clear.

I think they key is going to be to compare these to known good copies of FDNS. Was anyone here at the signing and could they updoad their sig?

I wasn't able to attend the signing, but all three look good to me. I have one that I purchased from an attendee, and it matches the second one very closely.

I don't see many of the looped "T" in Stephen, but I know they exist. Here's a previous signature thread with many authentic sigs to compare to
