Attached is a very low resolution of the image I am after - its identifying label reads ... post 2916-0-70427300-1364383134. There are frequent references to 'Payne's engraving' (which I believe it is) but I cannot find any actual posting on MSW. Close examinations shows a seaman standing on the anchor stock that is just above the water line. Can somebody help ?

I found another copy on wikipedia.  The caption reads:


'The true portrait of His Majesty's royal ship theSovereign of the Seas', a contemporaneous engraving by J. Payne


I could not find the source for the photo.
