Years ago I purchased 50 unused antique embossed Christmas postcards from the "Merry Christmas Series 403"; there are also duplicates of some. They are all in mint or near mint condition with the exception of one, which happens to be the one in this listing. The back of the postcards are unused; no writing, stamps or postal marks. I will be listing a few at a time.
This postcard shows Santa with his leg crossed, sitting behind a desk and on the phone. A large bag of toys is next to him, along with a small American flag which is sticking out of the bag. Holly is in the upper left corner. The caption reads: Christmas Greetings" in dark gold. "Merry Christmas Series 403" is shown underneath the caption.
The postcard is 3 ½" X 5 ½".
This postcard has two creases: a crease which extends all the way down, from top to bottom; it's to the right of the toy bag (see pic); the other one is on the right lower side across his boots (see pic). Also, three of the tips show very minor wear.
