    Aw, shucks… he only did it for equipoise. Churchill, Hitler – what’s the difference? History – what’s that?

  2. Alan Allport Says:

    Unless it has an impeccable provenance, it’s very likely a fake. Connie Kujau, author of the Hitler Diaries, knocked out hundreds of them alone.

  3. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Alan: That was Mr UD’s first question: provenance. My guess is that this guy – though clearly no genius – is a reasonably intelligent collector and probably has a good advisor. I’d say chances it’s a fake are about 50/50.
