I think your talking mainly about fine art GSPs here. There are plenty of "historical" () and documentary silver prints around in newspaper offices (do they still exist?), museums, and people's family snapshots. My grandfather was a newspaper and armed services photographer in the early 20th Century in Omaha. His work is available in Lincoln at the Nebraska State Archives (also the Smithsonian).

I couldn't say whether you saw a contact print or not – that info should have been with the print, but if it was larger than 8x10, it was almost certainly an enlargement. I recall seeing a glorious 30"x40" print of it hanging above the foyer of the Mono Inn (owned by his daughter) near Lee Vining, CA, many years ago.
