(as in Scott # 292) INTAGLIO ETCHING PRINT
This is NOT a stamp, it is a print. This real stamp is a rare gem, remarkable in it’s simpleness and splendid in it’s engraving. I invested along time working on this print and considerable time looking at the original painting by J. McWhiter & quot; & quot; The Lead & quot;. His version portrays the lead bull with cautious dignity, something I have actually attempted to regain in this print.
This product is an original handmade art work, part of a series where I redraw Timeless stamps as closely in style and rendering as possible.
1. All these prints are intaglios like the timeless stamps. (not offset or digital automation!)
2. I produce 8 inch x 10 inch etching plates, printing them in similar color as the originals and after that cut these prints to mimic the perforations or imperforations as required.
3. All printing plates are hand drawn, and hand printed.
4. Each print is original and takes about one hour to print.
5. This is a signed restricted edition print of these images as “mint”. Edition of 100 signed and dated
6. Image size 6 inches by 10 inches

If you are buying my etchings of Unusual US Stamps, kindly read my description. I when sold these prints on ebay.com but I made use of to get greedy purchasers who believed they were getting the actual rare stamp worth countless dollars and paying $ 50-65. My descriptions plainly said that this is NOT a stamp. The buyers never ever read my description but had the nerve to get upset at me.
