Great video done by THE most important Armstrong authenticator in the business.  I have attached a circa 25-year old photo of my son holding two of the infamous "Peachstate" Apollo 11 crew signed lithos.  It was due to Steve discovering a "tell" on many of the "Peachstate" Armstrong items that alerted many collectors to the fact that these particular signed items were forgeries.  I am deeply thankful that I was able to secure refunds on both lithos...all due to Steve's skills of observation.  Thanks again, Steve, and keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words, Marty. Yes those Peachstate fakes fooled a lot of people at first. You are certainly not alone. The Collins were bad too.

That was my first official autograph study which I nicknamed “the Neil Armstrong flag test.” Some others have tried to take credit for it since then… But I wrote the initial study 20 years ago. Hard to believe it’s been so long.

Steve, this is a great video.  I don't know how I missed it when you posted it.  

I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Very informative.

Now I know why so many of these have a faded autograph.
