Question
I just acquired a Currier & Ives print called "Wooding Up" on the Mississippi. It is marked E.F. PALMER, DEL. on the lower left and CURRIER AND IVES,LITH.N.Y. on the lower right.Under the title reads NEW YORK,PUBLISHED BY CURRIER & IVES, 152 NASSAU ST. The image itself is about 9 1/2 by 14 1/2. It is printed on very heavy paper and in good condition. If it is indeed an original, does it have any value?

Answer
I am not an expert about Currier & Ives but it is a good sign that the paper is heavy and usually prints marked with the Nassau address are originals. However "Wooding up" is massproduced and doesn't hold any substatial value my guess will be about $50.
