This French, holy picture was purchased in Rome and also sold in Paris. The front features the Holy Face of Jesus from the Turin Shroud. Beneath the picture is a written promise of indulgences signed by Pope Pius X in 1906. On the reverse is a prayer to Jesus in French and again the promised indulgences. Also stated is that the card was sold in Rome and Paris.
Because of the endorsement of the Pope and the date it is probable that the card dates to 1906.
The card is a light card stock encased in plastic. It measures 4 5/8" tall and 2 5/8" wide. The card measures 4 1/4" by 2 3/8".
Condition: With the exception of the staples, the card is in perfect condition. The small white line is just a dent in the plastic covering which the camera picked up.
