1910 Postcard with Comic Illustration, 'Help Wanted', Signed DWIG

This early comic embossed postcard is a pun on the word "broke", as it shows a man literally in pieces, with the caption: "Help Wanted, I am broke, send some glue".

The postcard is signed DWIG (artist C. V. Dwiggins), and is postmarked 1910. It was copyrighted in 1909 by A. Blue.

The postcard is in fair condition, with paper loss in the upper right corner, creases in both bottom corners, a few small spots, and age-browning on the back.

This card will be packaged in a rigid plastic sleeve. Insurance may be declined if not desired.
