Question
Can you give me any information on age, subject and what sort of print this may be. The inking is solid on coarse random fiber paper.Not dot matrix.The signature looks to be Ann Schumacher but I find nothing about this artist on the web. It reminds me of valuable old etching prints I have seen.

Answer
Hello Jeff, Your print appears to me some type of mechanical reproduction, maybe a steel engraving, but of poor quality.  You provided a number of good images but none showing the entire work out of the frame.  I do not recognize the artist and it is not Ann Schumacher.  Is there a plate mark?  What is it's provenance?  What caused the damage to the image?  Any value it may had would be negated by the extensive damage!  Cheers, Brent
