      A popular motif during WW2.

      Your example looks to be English-- the back may settle it.

      Did your grandfather stage in the UK prior to the Invasion?

      Found some similar examples online with a NY publisher address on the back.

      Now that is a card worth collecting. Is it used? Any stamp on it? Written on? If this is original it is a keeper.
    13. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 2 years ago
      I hadn't noted the numbering in small print at the bottom. I would say a reprint.
    14. scottvez scottvez, 2 years ago
      Looks original-- pretty easy to tell from the back/ stamp box.

      Nothing on the front is suggestive of a reprint. These aren't big ticket items.

      Quite possible it is an original but one more picture of the back would have helped. These were mass produced after the war.
