NEW Mahler autograph on sale

On sale on eBay, a photo of Gustav Mahler with a chequered history. Read more here.  Is it the photo Arnold Schoenberg treasured so much he kept it by his desk? How did it actually become missing from the Schoenberg archive? Why sell an extremely important document like this on eBay instead of through the specialist auction houses, who need to prove provenance or get sued? Will Paypal dispute resolution cover the buyer if the photo and its ownership aren't quite "as described". Who knows? Anyway, above, what has been described as "authentic Photoshop" created last night by one of my loyal readers. Available for sale,  offers over $100 000.
