    Hi Jan, look at the printing.

    The easiest way is to look at modern printed items and see how the dots are formed and then look at something you know is old.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This story had a sad ending, the picture is in the wrong size apparently maybe a bit too thick paper too. It was fun owning it "as long as it lasted" but I have no regrets as I learned a lot on the way and lost "not so much" money. To prevent it living a life of itīs own Iīve decided to burn it instead of selling it as "a possible fake".

    Just because it is not the same size as other known posters does not necessarily mean that this one was Fake-it may have simply just been a unknown different size, is all. A shame, seeing as it has now been burned and destroyed forever...

    Not burned (couldnīt manage to do that)
    but put into safe storage with a short document about the problems in proving itīs originality.

    Gave me a scare when you said you burnt it! There will always be that "what if" thought playing in my mind if i ever burnt anything!
