of Preferred Autograph Dealers and Auction Houses



                                                                                                                                                                   October 2018


The following list, very carefully put together, is of those autograph dealers and auction houses that pass muster in the COA Reference Library.  The list consists of those who have clean records with regard to their associations in the industry, lack of ethics complaints, not associated with issuing “useless COA’s” and have had a sterling reputation over several years or more.  These are autograph professionals who research their items and will honor their guarantee of authenticity.

This month we have added two prestigious names to our list of Preferred Autograph Dealers.  Abraham Lincoln Bookshop in Chicago, IL. If you are ever in Chicago, don't leave without visiting this shop/gallery, bring your camera. The other is Tamino Autographs in New York.  Tamino Autographs purchased Lisa Cox Music, La Scala Autographs and Safka & Bareis.


There are dealers who may have been inadvertently left off the list. May we hear from you for possible submission?

  • John, a few professional autograph dealers all with 20 years experience very carefully put this list together. Each has a excellent  reputation.  Good for you, it's always best to play safe.

    Also don't be fooled by someone's so-called credentials,  many are made up or they are in a position to have given it to themselves. The list is solid!


  • Stephen,


    Just thought i would ask as i buy from them quite a bit and wanted to make sure its on to buy from them,but will now have a look at the ones on the list.

  • John, as you can see they are not listed as a "Preferred Dealer."

  • just wondering if Autograph World are a reputable dealer

  • If the autograph dealer is on this list you should not have a problem. All are time tested. If you go outside the list you are basically on your own.  There may be a very few exceptions but the list is gold.

  • Stephen very useful, I have purchased from some of the listed Dealers, Thank you.
