German Limited lands sorted by slots

Post by Neuron » Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:48 pm

I had a hard time to sort the lands, but no effort is too heavy to answer misprint questions :wink:

(See here: http://magiclibrarities.net/forum/viewt ... &start=105)

The slots from English uncut sheets:

Uncommon:

Version numbering follows magiccards.info for Beta lands:

Version X: Common/Uncommon



Plains

V1: 2/2 Image V2: 3/2 Image V3: 3/1Image



Island

V1: 3/0 V2: 4/1 Image V3: 3/1



Swamp

V1: 3/3 Image V2: 3/3 Image V3: 3/0 Image



Mountain

V1: 3/2 V2: 4/2Image V3: 3/2Image



Forest

V1: 3/2 Image V2: 2/2 Image V3: 4/1 Image


This should be valid for all Foreign Limited and Unlimited editions, maybe as well as for English Revised. At least the extremly high alignment of Forest V3 title has been transferred since Beta.

Features looked at:

- alignment of white "L" in “Land”
- alignment of white title (especially with Forest)
- difference between white and black in title, type and Illus. line (all lands)
- alignment of lower case “g” in title (Mountain only)

After finished I noticed:

1. There were very small ink blotches or even patterns of blotches on some sub-versions. As they almost never differ in saturation, it’s likely that they were errors on the printing plate.

2. Some sub-versions had a side of the colored frame around the art box wider than normal.

The numbering is tentative and should be called a – e. I need to think about a consistent way for sorting. In many cases it seems that when going after the title alignment, the type line isn’t in order et vv.

To be completed.

No hurry, but I'm looking forward to reading more about this after you have time to finish.
