||Circa 1960s USAF Press Release 1st Generation AKA Original Photo (Collotype Matte Print)|
||10x8 inches with some minor variation|
||Original press release photo issued by the USAF. Note this is not a real-photo but a collotype continuous tone print, (No Dots), and was used as a substitute for real photos by the Air Force in the 1960s. The image quality is very good, "near real photo quality", and the Air Force considered these suitable for reproduction by news outlets. I guess the Air Force used these instead of real photos due to the Vietnam War. They needed to cut costs somewhere. It is on rather flimsy paper stock. Note this photo does not neatly fall into my grading standards but we do consider all news photos 1st Gens AKA Originals.
Do not expect perfect photos. Often old photos have small creases and tears around the edges.
