This alone shows how much better the OG is. In the S2, she looks like she got punched in the face/designed by a daybill pro. (Sorry, Chris...had to).

hahahahahahahahaha.....

Gotta love those dodgy daybill artists!



PS Whatever happeed to Ben. He dropped out of APF a year ago.....

The Mummy OS that sold for $453K back in 1997 was from the collection of Todd Feiertag, and I dont think his copy was heavily damaged and restored. (I'll email him and ask, for verification). At the time it was auctioned, 2 copies were known to exist, so maybe it was the other copy that needed a lot of restoration. (I seem to remember reading one was found sandwiched under some other posters on an exterior barn wall or something similar, and was heavily damaged due to exposure, moisture etc).

Here's an article from The Deseret News, dated March 2, 1997, after the Sotheby's auction was over, giving more details:

And the wikipedia image is not the S2 version. The 1932 US OS is shown.

Great info Jeff.



So he paid $5 for it in the late 60s and sold it in 1997 for the 2017 equivalent of $668K. That's a hell of an investment!

Wonder what the damaged copy went for?

Somebody changed the Wiki page. When I looked at the source image it was the 3000px image of the S2, no doubt taken from HA. Now it's an 800px image of the original.

The image source for The Mummy wikipedia page is (and has been for a long period of time) the Los Angeles Public Library. The library also holds a copy of the US OS and it's referenced as the source at the bottom of the actual wiki poster page:

I've ordered two S2's which are Gilda and Lady from Shanghai.

There's now way I'd be able to afford shelling out $30000 for the Gilda so I'll take an S2 instead.

The Lady from Shanghai I have been outbid on so many times, seems to go anywhere from $4000-$7000 now so I'll take an S2 on that until I can finally get an original.

They do look good and as Mel says they are currently a pretty good deal seeing as they sell on other auction sites for $300

The S2s work as good placeholders, Marc.  I agree with you there.  ;)

(And with the S2s also being stone lithos  -- that's another added perk, I have to say).

Now if there was a Laura S2 I'd probably buy that as well. Considering most of the other posters are within my price range that's the only one which, to me, is a big outlay.

Although I have seen a few Razor's Edge one sheets which the asking price has been middle five figures  :(

These are really cool. I wish more 2.0 vs original matchups had been shared, but looks like the thread died a slow death.

The only one that I have is the Gilda one, and it looks phenomenal, but they did make a few mistakes. The biggest of which is the producer's name is clipped (becomes GINIA instead of VIRGINIA). lol
