When it arrived, he discovered a personal message scrawled to its original owners on the first page. It appeared to be signed by Martin Luthor King Jr. himself.
Captain_fishy posted images of the book and its autograph on Reddit, hoping that someone would be able to verify the signature's authenticity.
"If anyone can help me determine if it's real I would be much appreciative. I've looked up MLK's signature and it seems to match up pretty well. Thanks!" he wrote.
Some Redditors linked to digital copies of MLK's signature while others cautioned that getting the signature authenticated could cost more than the book is really worth. The book's owner responded that he'll consult with a university professor first, "but of course I may never know."
