original or repro: 1960 poster GP with Porsche

#1 Post by Robert Braunsberger » Sun Feb 25, 2018 2:14 pm

I have recently bought this poster from a lady in Austria who claimed it is original from 1960, she said she got it from her father who had 3 of these put aside back in the days.

the quality of the print is very good, the paper looks relatively old, some minor wrinkles and few discolorations visible on both sides, however not quite to the extent as one would expect from an almost 60 years old paper. I had expected to see some kind of originator or print information either front or backside but can't find any.

can any of the Lit specialists give me some input on how to identify original versus reproduction?
thank you!

Robert:
It looks like you have an original Rolf Sprenger. As you know, it is a BIG poster. I have the identical image as yours on mine with differences in lettering, as my poster was the end-of season 1960 F-II World Championship for Manufacturers announcement.

About 10 years ago I talked to Tony about mine, and I think that he said that, at that time, mine was worth about $800-$900. I'd be interested in reading about what Tony thinks of market value these days, so please share what you find out. They really beautify a wall!

Best,
