Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the prints,
signatures and back of completed framing where there might be labels or writing.Please add images at your convenience by using the +Add File feature
next to the SEND button.

Once you do, give me some time to research.

No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond.

I'd like to get my money's worth from this effort.

I got the same picture (IMG_0019.JPG)

three times, so the attach files is working but you need to only add one photo at a time and hit send after each one selected.

I think you might have tried to add them as a batch and that is why only one was added.

If you still experience any trouble with this tool, you can email the pictures to***@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me (please include the link to your question page).

These are Remington prints from Collier's Magazine and were mass-produced for resale, created circa 1906 to 1912. They were offered in the magazine by mail order for about $1.00 each, and often re-printed in different sizes, also grouped in folios with titles such as "Remington's Best Paintings." These were marketed as Artist's Proofs, a term that deceivingly suggests that these were prints pulled first from the press for Remington's approval. The "Artist's Proof" tags also have a simulated Remington signature, another factor that fools the untrained eye.

These prints have a current value of $20 each retail, so it would be $120 for the set of six framed prints.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
