I picked up 5 pencil signed lithographs at a garage sale

Customer Question

I picked up 5 pencil signed lithographs at a garage sale this weekend. I've made out a few signatures as Marion Greenwood (Carib Mother), E. Amero (the family), Reynold Weidenaar (Reverie), and two more I haven't made out yet. Wondering if I over paid at $5 each? Value?

Thank you for your question, my name is Timothy.

It looks like you did well.

Marion Greenwood (1909 - 1970) (Carib Mother) Has sold at auction for: $80.00

Emilio AMERO (1910-1976) his lithographs sell at auction: $100.00 to $300.00

Reynold Henry WEIDENAAR (1915-1985) Reverie: Has sold for $170.00 at a recent auction.

Looks like a nice return on your investment.

Happy Memorial Day

Can I ask about the other 2 or do I have to pay again?

If you know the artists I can do it here.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I haven't been able to identify the artists. But I bet they are recognizable to someone. I'll upload them and see if u recognize them. I also picked up 3 books at the same sale from mid 1800. One is a dictionary, one is a pictorial United States of America, and one is a Parsing book? All in pretty rough shape but only paid $2.00 for all 3 books.
