Degorce was perhaps more talented as a painter than an engraver
going by his paintings and drawings.




Here is an article from Stamp & Coin Mart which depicts
an unaccepted Degorce design for the 1938 state
visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to France.

And here is Henry Cheffer's design and engraving.

I actually prefer the Degorce design.

Wow! Very impressive designs. I really like the locomotive.
The skiing scene also looks really nice with the mountains in the background.
