PHOTO NOTE: Linen finish lithograph. Scanning frequently distorts the clarity of the image. When viewed in person, the card image usually shows greater clarity and intensity of colors, compared to the more muted "grainy" look of the scanned image. Minute defects are also exaggerated by the scans, and often barely noticeable when viewed in person.

CONDITION: PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. Condition is only fair to good. Light postal cancellation marks and a light surface crease are visible in the sky. Two repaired margin tears, and several light creases. White border shows some very light discoloration light age discoloration. Back has light soiling / discoloration, more noticeable around the edges. Message, address and postmark are clearly readable. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
