Description
Superb artwork by Tom Chantrell. The Style C was originally printed for international distribution only, so there is no NSS info. on them. (A handful were printed with a PG ratings box for special US engagements). There are known fakes/bootlegs always appearing on eBay and they usually appear rolled. Some criminals now are folding them to make them appear more 'authentic'. Beware! It is very difficult to find an original style C. THEY ARE EXTREMELY RARE! Less than 1000 were issued (some say less than 500) and many have not survived. Sometime during the 1980's there were many thousands of these that were illegally re-printed. The prints are so good that it is believed that the forgers somehow got their hands on the original printing plates. The fake is darker, the writing on the bottom border is thicker, and there is a 'hair' on the back of the princess (here is a picture of a REAL one without the hair). Also on originals there are pinkish red clouds around Han's and Leia's blasters, on the fake there is barely anything.
