Customer Feedback for Imperial Sky Vol. I

“Your book is remarkable. I have learned so much today just from peering into the details and seeing for the first time some of the minutiae which defines the badges and rules out others….its also allowed me to positively identify a Juncker issue pilot with a firmness enough to make an offer on it.” – Canadian Collector

“You’re my new hero! With your book in hand, I feel confident that I can weed out most of the fakes as I continue to collect flight badges.” – American Collector
