Sorry Rod for not getting this posted sooner!

Basically, there are 11 different types of these prints out there. The First Version is from circa 1896. It should be marked Milwaukee Lithograph Co. and the overall size of the print is 49-1/2" x 39". These, in their original Anheuser-Busch marked frames are going in the price range you mention, in good condition. The Second Version is just as valuable. Circa 1904, with an overall size of 42"x32". They were NOT in a frame marked Anheuser-Busch. They were also done by the Milwaukee Lithograph Co, but were not marked by them. I own one of these second versions. The others were...1913..done by another lithograph company...1934/1936...44"x33-1/4" size..1938..27-5/8"x41-3/8" size...1941...similar to 1938...1948...now references "Budweiser Beer" and 32"x41-3/8" size...1950...Budweiser Beer and 41-1/4"x27-1/2" size...1951...ditto but 30"x20"...1952/1953 (only 2000 made and the most valuable)...27-1/2"x23-1/2" size, on canvas, gold-gilt frame with plaque that reads "Custer's Last Fight" "Presented by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St.Louis, Missouri" And the final versions from 1954 thru 1962, which are mounted in a carboard frame and are worth about $50-$75.

Hope this information helps!

Bob
