    Wow. What a find! An old ammonia type blueprint. Looks to be in good shape. Be VERY careful with that in regards to exposure to the sunlight. It doesn't take much at all to fade them. They really weren't designed to last a long time.

    Too bad that stamp is on the front. That was a bit of a mistake, IMHO.

    Are there any other markings on it? Oftentimes, printrooms would put a datestamp on prints to enable users to identify the latest copies. If you had two copies of a print, you'd toss the older one and use the newer one.

    Also we'd mark them "reference only" or something like that, depending on who would get them. Not always, but usually.

    here is part of a email we got from the martin museum: Hi,

    The YB-10 and YB-12 were the same aircraft with different engines. The YB-10 12 were considered pre-production versions of the B-10 for testing. They were all part of Martin design M-139. The drawing is certainly original and obviously rare.

    Don't bother. I'll take it off your hands. Why fuss with all that stress and paying auction fees? :D
