Picture Post Card No. 4 with Stamps

 

Picture Post Card 4

 X:\POSTCARD\CARD?.HTM is the CD-Rom page address where X is the drive letter of your CD-Rom. (Note: no relevant reference page)

The CD-ROM pictures three post/trade cards under the category 'Picture Cards with Stamps'. It is important to include them in a reference on forgeries as in the past 'stamps' portrayed on them have been cut out and passed off as genuine. This card (which I have numbered No.4 in this category) was produced in 1921 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Postal Service. Although this card was detailed in the October 1958 edition of Japanese Philately (Vol.13, p 201), and illustrated in the April 1989 edition (Vol. 44, p 51), reference to it was inadvertently omitted from the CD-ROM.
