This is the third and final installment in the groundbreaking series on Russian Imperial badges by S. Patrikeev & A. Boyonovich. Due to ongoing research since the series inception, this volume includes many additional badges not covered in Volumes 1-2 and also close-up photos of many of those that only had drawings. On pages 171 - 183 are corrections in Russian and English to the first two volumes. Very importantly, this book contains a price estimate for every item in Volumes 1 through 3 as of the beginning of 2006.
There is also a section with recent reproductions, a real eye-opener. A very worthy conclusion to a truly outstanding series, a "must have" for the serious collector of Russian badges.
