I noticed these folks have astronauts from time to time.

Has anyone dealt with them, and is this a good Armstrong?
eBay item 736499551 (Ends Nov-22-02 12:59:20 PST ) - Neil ARMSTRONG, color 8x10, in WSS; NR

Thank you.....marc

Yes, it's good - bidder "bigbuyer1000" got a nice Armstrong WSS ISP for only $499.99. But it's a little surprising that the lot only received one bid and also surprising that experienced seller "Kotte" had no reserve on it. Perhaps the slight crease in one corner might have kept some other bidders away, but a minor crease shouldn't have been much of a concern.

These "1970's era" Armstrongs are just what a lot of collectors are looking for, or should be, as this style is so standard & typical of authentic Armstrong WSS ISPs that collectors should really go after them - if authenticity is their main concern. But, alas, many collectors are much more interested in unpersonalized/uninscribed Armstrongs - the forgers favorite subject.
