Not sure if it is the same one, but there is a lithograph of a similar
scene at a local shop that carries a number of Carl Barks works here in GP.
It shows $crooge on a mining cart full of gold coins comming out of a
mine shaft, all around are the rest of the Duck familiy standing and
sitting on bags of gold. I'll go back this week and see what the title
is, seems like there were about 250 prints made. It's probably 20x24 in
size. I don't recal it as a cover scene. I'll let you know. The shop
has a number of Duck lithograph sets, with the nr 1 release. I'm eyeing
a grouping of $crooge Comic, Photo of Carl, and his Autograph, all in a
nice 11 x 14 frame under glass. It's about the only thing close to my
price range. I would like to get my "Uncle $crooge, his life & Times"
autographed.. working on that one.
