Fine Art/Mallard ducks in flight by Leon Danchin

Question
Just acquired this print, "Male and Female Mallards in Flight". Top left states "Copyright 1930 by La Gravure Francaise 41 Rue St Georges - Paris.  On the bottom left it has in pencil 22/500.  The bottom right has the signature of Leon in pencil.  I am just wondering if this is indeed a sketching or a print.  And also wondering what the value would be approximately.  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you
Carol

Answer
Carol:  it is definitely a print, even showing the name of the publisher--and there are 500 copies.  I have no idea as to value.  Enjoy.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
