Lame Cherry says that the same felt tip pen that signed Barack Obama’s long form also signed the fake birth certificate that someone made in 2010 to embarrass the birthers. Lame cherry writes:
This blog exclusively noted the White House abstract was signed with the same felt tip pen, which there were not felt tip pens in 1961 America nor the world. The handwriting looks the same, and this is vital, as you will NOTICE THAT THE SAME PEN, SAME WRITING STYLE appear in the Gram Dunham original.

Not even close
I must not understand what Lame Cherry is saying: the White House image is not an “abstract”; it is a copy of the full birth certifcate, and the fake Dunham signature is certainly not in the same writing style as Dr. Sinclair’s in the White House long form. Look at the letter “D” both upper and lower case for one of many variances.
What I wanted to discuss, however, is the issue of the “felt tip pen.” I wouldn’t argue with an assertion that the Dunham signature was signed with a felt tip pen because this is a modern fake and what it was signed with is not important. However, the pen that signed Obama’s certificate is important.
Let me call attention to the ending “d” in “David A. Sinclair.” Note that the vertical loop is thinner than the lower parts of the signature. Because “David” is part of my own signature, I can sign that word pretty darned fast. I tried signing it with a Sharpie Ultra Fine Point felt tip pen, and I was not able to make the vertical loop thinner than the rest. All the strokes were of uniform density. However, when I was signing my name back in 1961, I was not using a ball point pen, or a felt tip pen, but rather a fountain pen. Fountain pens do tend to make lighter strokes in the parts of the signature that are written faster, i.e., long loops.
So grasshopper, I think we are dealing with a fountain pen here, circa 1961.
