The first an original print with a matte finish, depicting the star wearing a double-breasted jacket, signed in blue foutain pen ink cleverly on his cane handle "To Georgette Best Wishes" and on his pocket square "W.C. / Fields;" the second an original print with a glossy finish, depicting the star in unusual Western garb as he stands next to a horse, signed in black fountain pen ink on the lower left margin "To Mr. S.O. Willis / best wishes / W.C. Fields / seldom do you see / two horses rears / that resemble each / other so closely."
