Pugh Fakes, Forgeries and Counterfeits. Three volume (small 3-ring binders) set of the earlier (#1/#11) releases of Ken Pugh's lifework masterpiece "Reference Manual of BNA Fakes, Forgeries and Counterfeits", 1977 to 1981 period publication dates. This seminal study of Canadian and Provincial fakes includes detailed (for the period) black and white illustrations and an in-depth description of each bogus item (with reference photos of many of the genuine items). I don't know if the run of pages are complete but there are a few hundred loose-leaf pages in total. A hard to find publication. Estimate
