The Curtis Neeley Foundation issues
only ONE signed and fingerprinted annotated piece other than his books and the CMN Park image. The following mathematically guaranteed return exists if a piece is sold besides the books. Better than ANY CD!
Five years forward the value increases each day by [Price/1825] This will equal simple 4.7% interest in about twelve years and surpass it and be worth double the purchase price in fifteen years or slightly better than compound interest. It will equal the initial investment in 2737.5 days or at seven and a half years.
There is a requirement for yearly contact with a board member of the Curtis Neeley Foundation choosing annual re-certification or sale to re-certify the guarantee. The right of first refusal does not mean the secondary market is completely controlled - just completely monitored.
This means that the Foundation might offer more than the "secondary market" guarantee if they wish.
The Foundation might offer to buy the art back and raise the price significantly or let other secondary market buyers buy the existing signed art.
The guranetee it transferrable perpetually and equivalent to a bond as the money is in a Curtis Neeley Foundation Trust account available immediatly upon receiving the art print in well maintained condition.
| The graph shows that you start out in the BLACK and immediately go into the RED compared to a 4.7% compound interest mortgage investment.
You are breaking even by seven years and six months but still
taking a LOSS compared to simple interest till around year eleven. Afterwards, you are in the BLACK compared to simple interest.
Originals that were film will be noted and if the camera used may be determined, the serial number would be included on the DEED as well as the lens by serial number. Scanners and software will also be noted precisely when used.
All Curtis Neeley art is more unique than "rare" paintings that might be restored or improved but that will never have the artist’s fingerprint or the brush and paints that were once used annotated. Curtis Neeley’s signed art will come with a “DEED” that specifies this that will be signed and notarized by a foundation board member or Curtis Neeley if he is still able to sign.
The guarantee is transferable and the date and price it was sold originally is recorded.
Film has the same mathematical guarantee
but the initial cost has an antique film premium that is outside the
Curtis Neeley Photographs
from before 2002 are usually film based.
