Excellent 
Talk about unique. This is a printing plate for BG 11 in the Fillmore Series. The bands were the Wailers (not the Jamaican guys - the Pacific Northwest guys) and Quicksilver Messenger Service. The artwork is by the late, great Wes Wilson. The shows were held in June 1966. At the time of its’ original printing, postcards were not included on the plate. The cards were printed separately, usually on thinner stock and in monochrome. They disappeared quickly. Meanwhile, people started collecting in earnest, creating a demand for earlier artwork in the Fillmore Series. By early 1967, the decision was made to reprint the earlier stuff. This time, due to demand, postcards in full color were included on the plates. This plate is from that time and has three postcards to go with the poster. It is quite possible that the first printing plate does not exist anymore. This plate is two-side, featuring the same image on both sides. The plate measures 24” X 25 1/2”. This plate is in excellent condition, with only a little handling, to be expected with such an old sheet of metal. Printed by West Coast Lithograph Co. SF. One side has more ink saturation than the other. A truly unique piece and a real artifact of the time.
