@Tim R Johnson: Max, since you like antique roadshow, I suggest that you view the "Mystery of a Masterpiece" episode of Nova on the pbs.org website. It is about a picture that was bought for $20,000, that was later determied to be an unknown painting by Leonardo DaVinci worth over $100 million.
Oooh -- interesting -- I will do so this coming weekend -- thanks for sharing

Do yours have any labels on the back like the one from eBay? From the looks of the eBay one, that one is a mass-produced "colorised" one (Brit spelling just for you!). This would explain the Disney reference on the backside label. It may be a series of COPIES of yours, the originals!
@mhrackin: My dad was an artist (and international marketing executive) and used to haunt all kinds of resale shops both in the US and as he traveled the world.
After WWII, my dad's brother -- my Uncle Pug -- was the manager of the Prince of Wales theatre in London. As a hobby he was a collector of rare books and a recognized book-binder by Sothebys -- whenever he came up to Sheffield for a family occasion, he would spend Saturday wandering down Abbeydale Road visining all the old junk antique shops and he would often return to London with the boot/trunk of his car jam-packed with ratty old books.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
