    I have seen these around, I have to look at each one as I love the images.......I think they are from an ad campaign from the 70's or 80's.......... what is the provanonce with yours Jack?
    M:)
    I know I see new ones on ebay all the time. Still look at them:rolleyes:;)
     
  11. Not mine yet. Trying to get it though. Supposed to be an original from the 1970's. I was going to ask you how common they are & if they have ever been reproduced?

    I see the origionals around, BUT, there are many reproductions offered, even in differant sizes (you select the size you want)......so hard to say. I will say with the new ones in the mix....I would much rather look at one in person.....MUCH easier to determine that way!
    So....I have shied away from the internet and ebay ones. I have seen the real deal in antique malls though.......not too common.....but not rare either......
    Hope that helps........

  13. Framed, it's 3' x 4'2". It supposedly hung in a store.

    Could be the real deal......and anything framed will be expensive.....if for nothing else, just the framing. Is there any identification on the back of the frame?
    With all I said about caution....there are reputable experienced dealers out there....
    AND often they will let you call and actually talk to them......
    Good luck..
    Best,
    M.
     
  15. There would be a couple more pcs involved so I don't want to say too much. Thanks for the help!

    I love the Nebraska connection here. :) After the Senator died her Cherry County ranch was donated to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and now serves as a historical park, as well as a working ranch. Great photo!

    Very easy to believe. Just go to your local sale barn in ranch country and start counting.
