Hi guys,
Need some advice. I'm looking at a signed limited edition of the Kennedy book. I believe there was 1000 signed ltd done, not numbered,packed with a DVD. I have an opportunity to grab one. I also have the chance at an authenticated flatsigned first ed,first print. My question to you is, should I grab the ltd ed, or the flatsigned, (the price is nearly double for the ltd ed)I'm wondering if a non numbered ltd ed without many other special features is worth that much more?
Thanks for any help/ thoughts/opinions.
Cheers,
Ben

Go for the limited edition because the signature will be real. There are thousands of fake King signatures out there. 2 minutes on ebay would expose dozens of them.

The S/L price should be around $275 and a signed 1st/1st should be $200. (based on average sales prices at Betts Books)

Good tip. I'm looking at a flatsigned from a reputable dealer, the ltd ed is double at $400, hence the hesitation....

I agree with Mr. RT--go for the signed limited. It also has a different dust jacket than the trade edition. By the way, there were 1000 copies of the signed limited, but only 850 were distributed to the public.
