    original engraving of Maréchal Petin with Vichy Francisque. It has a Vichy censorship cancelation, signature of the author and number on it too. Only 400 were made during the war!!! :) :eek:

    Cheers Kai, I couldn't believe when I found this. I had already seen official townhall pictures from time to time, but not a private Vichy censorship approved piece of art and signed too. The author was a famous illustrator for child books before the war.
