Italian Second Edition With Bold Copyright.

Post by cataclysm80 » Wed Oct 30, 2013 3:32 pm

I'm looking to gather information here on the Italian Second Edition (Revised) cards with the BOLD Copyright.

I first heard them mentioned here...
http://www.magiclibrarities.net/forum/v ... php?t=2383

Here are some examples from that thread...
Image
Left: slash on i, Revised text
Middle: dot on i, Revised text, bold copyright
Right: dot on i, 4th Edition text, normal copyright

Image
close up of the Bold copyright as compared to a regular 4th Edition card.

Most Italian Second Edition cards have a regular copyright like the 4th Edition cards, but some of them have a Bold copyright.

The Bold copyright is not just heavy inking as the Bold causes the text to lengthen so that you can see the copyright line IS longer.

The Bold copyright cards seem to use the same text and alignment as Italian Second Edition cards.

Some of the Bold copyright cards use a dot over the lowercase i like 4th Edition. I personaly have a Bold copyright Library of Leng that uses a slash over the lowercase i like Italian Second Edition cards. I think this indicates that the Bold copyright printing was in between Italian Second Edition & Italian 4th Edition.

Commons and Uncommons have been shown to exist with the Bold copyright.

Possibly not connected, but the German/French test prints also appear to use a Bold copyright.

I am looking for some of these Bold copyright cards for my global sets. Are they hard to find? I have multiple of the Library of Leng so far and no others, but Italian cards aren't frequent here in the USA. Do all cards in the set exist with Bold copyright? Maybe we should make a list, what do you have?

Looking for more information and/or opinions.

Hello Alexis, Have you seen the Bold copyright on any sets other than Italian Second Edition? So far I have only seen it on Italian Second Edition.

Also, I have only seen the Bold on White copyright lines. I haven't seen Bold in Black yet.

Does anyone know what that black card with the bold copyright is above?

So far we have Channel, Library of Leng, and that black card.

I made that scan originally, and I'm pretty sure it was Drain Life, but I wasn't able to find that card in my collection to confirm it. It may be long gone.

I did find this though

Also Rares exist.

This site has all the pictures, someone just need to check all 3xx Cards (;

Maybe this helps:

4th

Rare

Wow, thanks for that link! When I get some time (in a week or so), I'll look through all those images and post here which cards show the Bold copyright. A quick glance shows that not all Italian Second Edition cards pictured on that site have the bold copyright, but possibly it is just coincidence that those are the cards they happened to scan.

We know that Common, Uncommon, & Rare exist with Bold copyright. Do you suppose that the whole sheet was printed with Bold copyright, or was it just specific cards? So far I have still only seen White Bold copyrights, No Black ones.

The majority of Bold copyright cards posted here show the slash over the lowercase i. Only the Channel shows a Bold copyright with a dot over the lowercase i. Channel also has a version that is Bold copyright with a slash over the lowercase i. We haven't seen a Channel with regular copyright and text matching Italian Second Edition. Maybe regular copyright versions of the Bold copyright cards don't exist? I wonder if there are dotted i versions of these other Bold copyright cards that we've seen?

Very interesting post! If that shop should have an amount of pictures with bold copyright listed, they shouldn't be too scarce. Yet, it's questionable whether the entire set is affected. Could also be partial like this:

http://www.magiclibrarities.net/forum/v ... php?t=9132


Does anyone have collected the bolds systematically or own a huge stock of that set? This would help much.

Shell scripts can do funny things.
First i thought the copyright alignment was just sloppy, but its 2 different sorts of alignment. Some of those are bold and some are not.

Wow, thank you for looking through all the cards! As they are really many, can we assume that the entire edition has two versions? For the Channel, we know that there are both.

The error list can be specified like this, each card seems individually screwed:

Bottom frame script shifted: Mesa Pegasus
Entire frame script shifted: Darkpact
Title, type, text box shifted: Plains

Then there are "i"'s instead of "í"'s in some green cards. The red ones not only have the copyright date bold, but it's also the wrong colour.
Very confusing.

Anyone familiar with the software who can explain that?

mmgun, can you put always three pictures in a row? Then it becomes easier to check.

I got some artist proofs from Anson maddocks Lure and Onulet from italian 3rd WB
We checked his whole stock, he just has one version of Lure Proof ( Bold Copyright, dark color, "i" with slash)
There is no "i" with dot version for artist proofs, just for regular print.

Same for Onulet, only one version of Proof exist. But here i suppose, even for regular 3rd wb italian print only one version exists as well.
