Did anyone asking for high res scans even watch the video?


A fake back is a bit tougher than a fake overprint, but it's doable. But I saw enough details in the microscope images to feel confident that it's not fake.


Fronts are much harder, but there's nothing in the detailed look at the caption that's on the intro to think there's any problem there at all.

Default Blue OLD MILL

I'll reprise what I said earlier. And, add to it.

This was most likely only one such sheet (or perhaps two); therefore, I don't expect us to find duplicates of given subjects.

Both Powell and Walsh are from the 150 series. In the future, it wouldn't surprise me if a few more T206's
surface from this series with Blue OLD MILL backs.

Incidentally,
Here's a Lundgren with a Blue OLD MILL back, an obvious reprint (I acquired this one back in the 1990's).

Who owned the first one found and where did this card come from?

Was the first one found in 2015?

I hate to beat a dead horse BUT I think it's worth pointing out there is a shared characteristic between that Lundgren, the Walsh, and this Powell card: all three have that large space at the bottom of the card, and from what I can tell, the same space.

One is a known reprint, the other two are believe to be authentic. Again, could all be a total coincidence. That's a lot of coincidences though.

You make this sound like fact while I believe there is still a lot more info needed to conclude your opinion is correct. In a world where an infinite series of events could occur you nailed it down perfectly not withstanding down to what he had for lunch that day?

That was a cool presentation and a really fascinating find. Who knows, maybe this will turn out to be the new Brown Lenox of T206 rare backs. I am excited to see if all of this materializes into something. I would slab it!

Good luck!

I worked part-time in a print shop back in my High School days. I do know what goes on in the course of producing printed artwork.


Did you ever work in a print shop....Mr. Torres ! ?

Ah, the photo. Compare that space on the bottom of the back on the Walsh to the same space on the Lundgren and the same space on the Powell.
