The first postcard with Santa Claus ready to go down the chimney is by definition an antique postcard. The embossed card is postmarked 1916. The jolly Saint Nick wears a fur trimmed red coat and hat, carries a very full bag on his back, a pipe in his mouth. The postcard offers a full moon land a snowy background. Both of these postcards are in good condition but each has a few issues. This card having a white or ivory background shows age tanning and light soiling. There is a small superficial tear on the back and the corners are bumped.
The second postcard carries a postmark of 1925. The surface background of this postcard is white with a light gloss. On this card Santa wears red pants and the red coat and hat with white fur trim. His gloves are red and he wears a black belt and of course is carrying a huge satchel of toys and gifts. The corners are lightly bumped, there is light edge wear, and a very short tear on the side.
