Keith, short answer. Offset litho (copy) will likely show “organized” dots under magnification. Original may have dots but in a random “pattern.”Great thread, Rick! Gives us another chance to show our "junk". My photos are not good but.... I have had the jaguar print since late 70's I will guess, maybe into the 80's, don't recall for sure. I had it professionally framed. Any idea how to tell a later print from original issue?
I will take this opportunity to show this mirror. Again, I have had it 40 years or so and have never seen another. It is a mirror (the feet are not part of the graphics on the mirror).
And another poor photo of Randolph Scott's movie "Colt 45". Not a good movie but, a great name for it. I think the original name was Chief Thundercloud or something along those lines. Early 1950's.
And the last photo is of my Tex and Patches, again 35 to 40 years ago when it didn't mean a whole lot to me.....and I decoupaged it to a piece of paneling. I really hope it was not an original!
Thanks for looking,

I’m sure the decoupage may have been a good idea 40 years ago. Now, maybe not so much!
