N.C. Wyeth: The Story of Gold

I never saw this one before, I clipped from an art magazine. It was originally published in a calendar called "The Romance of Commerce," published by John Morrell & Co., 1941. Other plates from the calendar are called "The Story of Furs," "The Story of Coffee," "The Story of Whaling," etc. If the rest are the caliber of this piece, I sure would like to see them.
