Cool Hi Nightstalker

…...That's a great addition to your collection. A good looking GAB attributed to RK.

However, it cannot, at this time, be attributed to Karneth, unless you have discovered some new information...

Hi guys

......Definitely well spotted Tom, to borrow Giel's statement. I wonder if the skunks that made this PAB are responsible for the HA FAKES as well.

Exclamation Hi Pepe77

This statement is incorrect.

Cool Hi Rich

......Good IAB by JFS. It looks like it may have been one of the horde find of JFS IABs that Gailen David marketed many years ago. Looks great to me!
