Laugh all you like im no hand writing expert and own a few log books myself but the hand writing looks very modern in style. I know everyone is different but all the writing in my ones which i got many years ago have writing similar to the style of my Grandparents??? just a thought and the lack of official stamps shown because i have seen many log books on ebay emty and ready for the forger. Just my pennys worth guys sorry if i offend anyone but if you got it cheap excellent good for you.
