Limited Edition Prints
Each limited-edition of prints is issued by a publisher and sold to collectors through the publisher's dealers at a specific preset retail price called the "issue" price. The length of time it takes for an edition to sell out varies, the more popular the artist and subject, the quicker the edition will sell. Signatures of famous pilots like Chuck Yeager, Jimmy Doolittle and Günther Rall can cause an edition to sell out in a few months. When all prints in a limited edition are sold, continuing demand usually causes the print value to appreciate - often substantially.
The publisher of a limited-edition supplies a Certificate of Authenticity with each print, certifying the number of prints in the edition, giving historical information on the subject and confirming that the plates and negatives used in printing the edition have been destroyed and no more prints will ever be produced, thus making the edition limited.
An edition of 500 prints would be considered relatively small; an edition of 1,500, large.
