Just flipping around last night and happened upon the PBS show, History Detectives. The upcoming segment was about a collage with an FZ signature and was items from a Drum Shop that Frank hung out at when he was a Drummer very early on.

After several peoples take as to what it was or if anyone including Frank's brother ever saw it...and they didn't, they end up with Frank's wife Gail at the Drum Shop to discuss.

Gail verified the signature and after looking at a photo of the at that time Drum Shop owner as well as a Boxing Ring Bell from the artwork, it was determined that this was indeed done by frank very early on when he was about 20 or maybe earlier.

Very cool story and artwork.
