How Rare??? I Challenge you to find another! Go ahead check it out.... you have the whole World Wide Web!! This is one of the rarest pieces of Movie Memorabilia you will ever find! Some of my customers include Museums located throughout the U.S.A. They have purchased similar Ad Mat molds to exhibit. These "WOOD AD MATS" are really Molds or Lead Forms that were intended to have molten lead poured into to them create castings, and then discarded. This was the way that Newspaper ads, press book Ad Mats and various publications were produced up until the mid 1960's. Most newspapers were done via letterpress printing and utilized what is called hot type. The lead was melted and then used to type out words and imprint pictures. Pictures were usually in the form of one of these molds, which is composed of a wood fiber material specially, designed to accept the molten lead. Once cooled the casting was secured in the desired position in the letterpress, inked and paper placed on top of the lead casting. The press was then brought down under pressure and 'whala' a spiffy movie ad for a film coming to a theater near you! Electronic typesetting made this process obsolete over 40 years ago! Today's computers and technology make this process extremely efficient. The Extremely Fine artwork in this is just incredible! My picture just does not do it justice at all. These molds are great conversation pieces and they are RARE as the dickens! This would look outstanding framed in a shadowbox type frame. Again these are composed of a Wood Fiber....Please don't expect something made out of metal! S H IS 5.95 AND I DO COMBINE SHIPPING ONLY 1 EXTRA FOR EACH ADDITIONAL AD MAT WON.
