    Yeah, it's a little big, though I am turned a little awkwardly here in the photo which exacerbates the look.


    I wish I could! I don't think this will stay in my closet, but I was so excited to find something of decent quality in the shop down the street I bought it right away.

    This thing is awesome. its huge - maybe 36" long. The animal, if anyone knows what the heck it is, please let me know. My dog loves it though.

    How weird is it to see Manhattan so flat!

    ^^ I am sooo envious of that etching. I've been looking for artwork like that to go in my library. Killer find!

    That's killer. Great find. Even if it's a repop still worth more than $12 framed.

    $30 orphan doesn't sound like a good deal to me. Maybe at $5.

    Spoo: That etching is super cool! I'm a big history buff too so I love this type of thing.



    They may be shipping in order of the payments/orders recieved. I got mine within in a day or two which is nothing short of incredible but I paid literally minutes after it was announced.

    Map expert might be of some help, but that's no map - and definitely not to scale. Art/etching expert I'd go a-seeking. If it were mine, I could not help but to unframe it and check the paper, and look for ridges (impressions) around the edges to see if it's a really plate print or whatnot, well as any other markings.

    paid Tuesday pm arrived in san diego via priority mail today. I did not get any shipping info prior to their arrival.
    I always wait longer for goods than everyone else does when ordering from theshoemart, ralph lauren, epaulet, and just about every other store.

    Unfortunately not. I don't have anything comparable either. Just a lot of books on local (Minnesota) history. It's a very interesting piece, though. I second ATLnoob. I'd be curious as to the age/artist/etc of the etching. I'd carefully un-frame it to get a closer look. Plus, who knows - you might find some old bonds or currency hidden behind there. You never know. :)
