Old Document Restoration

I have been working on another restoration. Below you will see the original and the restoration. I can't make out the secretary's name.

When I inverted it, it looked like H. K. Wyman...... but don't get me to lying!

If anyone knows pass it on!

Thanks

Good job Candy!!!

Your eyes are a lot better than mine... I cannot make out anything.

I would bet the signature was long faded before the water damage.

Maybe a search on the net would turn up a name are two.

Hi Candy.

Great job.

I love challenges like this, but unfortunately the compression to post it has destroyed all the info in the signature.

Please post the signature area only with no compression and then we can have a go at it

Ken.

Operation Photo Restoration

This is the signature on the NRA certificate. I haven't found anything on the net and I can't make it out...

Looks like H.K. Wyman on an invert of the photo... but????????

I couldn't see it in the artwork, but I found this 'googling'

The Frank L. Wyman Memorial Trophy was presented to the NRA in 1982 by Mrs. Wyman in memorial of her husband. Frank Wyman, a well known pistol competitor, was Secretary of the National Rifle Association for many years and also served at Director of the Program Division until his retirement in 1966.

Hi Nancy,

I don't see much either, if you tweak levels a bit after inverting you can just about make out that there is a signature, but I certainly can't read it.

Candy obviously has better eyesight than us.

F L Wyman

By tracing the signature I can make out what you see on in the attachment.
F L Wyman, after reading what Bill found, makes sense.

Thank you Bill, I wasn't about to find that much and I even joined "Gunforums.com" and there was one response but he pointed me to the NRA. I wrote the NRA yesterday and I've yet to have a response to my inquires.

I'll go with your information and if I dont' get a response back from the NRA or the owner, whose email addy is on the photo, I'll call it good and send it in to Operation Photo Rescue as complete.

Thank you again!!

Hi Candy.

Thanks for posting the signature only picture.

Signatures on certificates are something I never take too much notice of and it is quite likely that the owner of this certificate cannot remember the name in the signature.

My attachment is the best I can get from this. There is not much info there. But try as I might I cannot get Wyman out of it. In fact there appears to be two words not initials. But I still can’t read it.

I think you have done a great job on the rest of the restoration so this name is no biggie.


Ken.

On The Contrary

The owner of the certificate believes it was Frank Daniel.

Dear Ms. Roy:

To the best of my knowledge the name on the certificate should be that of
Frank Daniel who was Secretary of the NRA at that time.

If that is what he wants then it is the clients with I shall do. When doing a document I try to be as authentic as I can.

Thank you for working on it for me.
