Would appreciate thoughts on this uninscribed Armstrong-signed book...

My thoughts: In my opinion, it was signed by the same person who signed this one.

I can see some similarities between the two but this one in particular is very well done if it's a forgery. Scary.

The difference is ballpoint vs fiber tip. The ballpoint example above is not going to show slowness and hesitation as plainly as fibertip, which bleeds on the slightest slowdown.

I’ve seen this style many times, most often in books. In fact, one guy paid to add an Aldrin and Collins. Bad mistake.

Steve - I'm thinking you steered me away from this same book 6-7 weeks ago when it was on eBay. (Many thanks - again.)

I thought it looked familiar.

A perusal of the original seller's offerings tells you everything you need to know.

And the second book (with fiber tip signature), did originate from the same eBay seller.

Does this one look familiar? Hat trick.

First two are very similar. If he hadn't got the "shakes" on number 3 he would have been quite convincing!
