What does this mean?

Hi Joanne,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Is this signed by Andrew Wyeth anywhere? The Aaron Ashley collotypes that have sold at auction and brought more than $50-75 have all been signed by Wyeth, and bring a few hundred dollars.

Thanks to advise,
Delia

Hi- Yes, bottom right corner. I've attached another picture.
Thank you!

I apologize, I should have been more clear. That's a signature that in the business we refer to as "in the plate," meaning it is part of the image that Aaron Ashley used to make numerous reproductions. I was hoping this would have had a signature "outside the plate," suggesting that Wyeth himself had handled this.
In light of this, I would catalog this as:

After Andrew Wyeth (American,1917-2009)
Collograph print by Aaron Ashley, Inc.,
"The Olson Farm" (#1202)
on stock paper, 12 by 16 inches
signed in the plate
PROVENANCE: inherited
$20-30*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Yeah, would have been nice had it been outside the plate. Ah well, the way it goes.
Thank you,
Joanne
