This is one of two scratch-off postcards I have available. These are very rare novelty cards. This one is still wrapped in its protective cellophane envelope. This card is a lovely illustration of a Paris site that comes with a mini-history lesson. Questions are written in French and English verso and, I believe it's safe to surmise the answers waiting to be revealed under the gray scratch-off rectangle will be, too. The image is of the Fountain of the Saints, the oldest fountain in Paris!
The publishers' fine print says this card was "Imprime en France 88." I'm not positive that means 1988 as the printing date, but pretty safe to conclude that. I can tell you, based on the other card, which is franked 1993, that these cards are definitely vintage. The top right corner is lightly creased and the top left corner is a bit dog-eared.
This card is modern size: just under 6 inches across and just over 4 inches wide. Superb design by Frederic Flom. The other card, also still unscratched, is listed here: https://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-8604/Novelty-Scratch-History-Postcard-Cluny-Museum
This card is green and the other red. Perhaps the perfect Christmas gift for the Francophile in your life?
