There was some discussion a couple of weeks ago about the colorized Model 1919 blueprint that I purchased on Ebay. It is a very interesting paper item that probably dates from the war era or earlier, and was hand colorized with brown, grey, black, and yellow ink. The print may have provenance to George Goll, but I am not fully certain of its exact heritage, except that it was probably hanging in a frame at the AO Bridgeport Plant. The original appears to be a faint positive image from a blueprint on photo paper that was traced in ink and colorized. It arrived in a very old oak frame that utilized framing methods and hanging hardware of yesteryear. It documents Model 1919 Thompson serial number "No." That particular weapon, which is featured In Tracie Hill's book, has a 1921 style actuator and a front sight, unlike other 1919's.

I have received this item, and had 20 color copies printed on card stock. They are slightly enlarged, and printed on 11" x17" paper with a small white border edge around the image. They came out very nice! I want to make these available to interested collectors at a reasonable price, so I am offering them for $12 shipped first class mail in a tube. I accept PayPal, money orders, and personal checks. Texas residents must add 8.25% sales tax.

Here is a scan of the original image:

Here is a picture of the 11" x 17" print I am offering for sale. (Please excuse the flash reflection.) The prints look really great, and the printing reduced some of the wrinkles that are obvious when viewing the original, since it was pressed on glass for the copies to be made.

Just e-mail me if you would like to purchase one of the prints.

Thanks!

Thanks for the overwhelming response to the 1919 Thompson print! My e-mail has been going nuts since I posted this....I am now sold out of the 20 that I had printed. If anyone else wants one, please let me know, and I can go have more printed. I knew there would be an interest in these, but I would have printed many more had I known how quickly they would go...

Thanks!

David,
Excellent, simply excellent. I believe John, Jr. would even like one of these. As a matter of fact, if you offer these again and John orders one and doesn't like it, I will buy it from him. How's that for a money back guarantee biggrin.gif

Mine arrived today. Awesome!

LOL, I might just need to put up a few more walls, there filling with Thompson & 20's related items. Been thinking about tearing down the old garage and putting up a block wall one with more space.

I went ahead and printed up another 25, so I have the Model 1919 prints available again. They are exactly the same as the previous batch. Please e-mail me if you would like one or more. They are $12 shipped first class in a tube. PayPal, personal checks, or money orders are accepted. Texas residents must add 8.25% sales tax.

Thanks!
