In Excellent Condition, the artist of this embossed New Years postcard includes the date 1900 cleverly within the illustration. Wishing a Happy New Year, the young blonde haired girl holds up a One for the first day of the year that also cleverly coincides with a golden 9 just beneath it and two zeros on the other side of her feet. There are also $1000 bills on the ground around her feet that can also be used in conjunction with the nine to formulate 1900. The rather unique postcard carries the early "Post Card" identification in several languages and fonts. The imprint is similar to the UPU (Universal Postal Union) imprints which appear on many cards of pre-1905 origin. The Eagle trademark is unfamiliar though the card does state it was made in Germany.
There is light age tanning on the back. The card has never been used or circulated. The card is clean, crisp and exceptional!
