Hi,

My father recently found this and gave it to me. It looks almost brand new, even has gloss to it. Could this be a reprint? The gloss worries me. Do 100 year old postcards retain gloss or even have it to begin with? Looks like a very young Cobb in the middle there.

Just curious if these are commmon and exactly what it is.

Thanks for any info.

I'm not familar with post cards, but you might want to ask the folks on Net54.

I would think that if it's glossy then it's probably a reprint, but I could be way off.

Looking at the one Earl posted, the OP's appears to be a reprint. Just look at the backs.
