Several more can be offered--please inquire!
Please note: It is not likely that error postcards
were printed in great quantity, or widely used.
Shakesperian(sic) Library, Washington, D. C. / 4A-H1791" showing the Folger
Shakespeare Library; unused circa-1934 linen postcard from the Scenic Art
Series of B. S. Reynolds, tiny bottom corner crease, tiny upper corner bend.
Hard to find because (1) the Bard's name is misspelled in the caption, and
(2) its name is actually the Folger Shakespeare Library. We doubt that
its administrating Trustees of Amherst College were amused. $5.00 dclea NEW / NOV / UUSI / ÚJ
"121. - NANCY / Palais Ducal / Petite / et Grande Porterie" in France, black & white on unused green back, mild corner & edge wear; two sets of perforations for booklet--one correct, the other too far in & at an angle. $3.75 ef
"20. KERMIT ROOSEVELT'S NARROW ESCAPE. / The cheetahs are just as dangerous, if not more so, / than lions and are very hard to kill..." Captioned erroneously on the back but front does not show Kermit; instead, it shows some natives surrounding a dead animal that is definitely not a cheetah! Unused, toned back, minor corner wear. $7.00 re
"26 Toledo. Puente de Alcántara y Castillo de San Serbando." tarjeta postal with very late usage at Elihu Kentucky, miscut in error at the printer so that the bottom is where the top should be, minor corner wear & rounding, short internal crease from the top edge breaks the paper, 3/4" scrape mostly in the distant hills at the left, 2 long scratches in the caption area. As is. For some reason, the castle shown at the left is not often seen on postcards of any quality. $2.50 esb
"2647. BERGEN. FRA HAVNEN. / K.K. BERGEN" including a ship under way, real photo with caption doubly printed, corner & edge wear, mailed from Norway to Minnesota. $5.00 en
"299 LAKE FRONT SKY LINE OF CHICAGO / © 1923 S. W. Straus & Co., Chicago. / 50239" with the back of the postcard also showing on top front sky due to overinking & stacking error at the printer, unused, minor corner wear. $3.75 ei
"3617 MOTOR ASSEMBLY, FOORD(sic) MOTOR PLANT, DETROIT." unused monochromatic dark green postcard, circa 1908 judging by the unevenly divided back, shallow scrapes along the back edges, only one such on the front. Rare & the caption tells you why: would you let a postcard publicizing your growing business circulate widely while not even spelling your name right? That error is unfortunate, because the image belongs in a museum. When we searched the Internet, no one was offering it, no one bragged about having sold it & no one was even exhibiting it. $15.00 aeim(d)
"4301. Fishing Cone, Yellowstone Lake, Yellowstone National Park" including a man & a woman fishing from it, postcard with black caption, mailed at Laramie Wyoming, back (Mildred's Chowder House in Hyannis, Massachusetts) mismatched with front . $5.00 yfe
"549 Natural Chimneys, near Mount Solon, Va. 45318" with another caption (presumably and error) inked off the top at the printer's, unused linen postcard, printer's guide marks at the upper corners look like creases but they are not. Cards like these were used as a temporary supply until the printer could get it right, then discarded (so they are not particularly common). Scene is now in Natural Chimneys Regional Park. $3.75 v(m)er
"56. PARIS -- Le Trocadero - The Trocadero Palace" with statue of an elephant prominent, black & white on unused green back with browning back edges. Because the separation perforations were at a slant, the card was not rectangular when removed from booklet. $3.00 ef
"59 PARIS -- La Gare de l'Est" and "58 PARIS -- ..." erroneous printing of postcard with 2 different black captions partially in the sky, both at an angle to where they should have been, unused monochromatic blue, undivided back, a little toning both sides obviously from a sloppy printing process. We assume that most of these cartes postales were noticed & discarded. An oddity for an advanced collection. $7.50 ef(p)
"69 SOUTHAMPTON -- Prospect Place" in England including a trolley in the foreground, sepia-tone, Soldiers Mail 25 APR 19 to Ohio from Private Thomas E. Davies at APO 749 (clear Southampton cancel), mild corner wear. Pronounced double print on front fuzzies up everything; back is fine. $3.75 e-a
"7953. Canivirial(sic) Building. Overton Park / Zoo, Memphis, Tenn." where the adjective carnivoral (of or pertaining to carnivores) is imaginatively misspelled; postcard mailed NOV 15 1912, upper corner crease tangential to stamp, light toning on back, minor corner & edge wear. In the collection of the Memphis Library, but you will be hard pressed to find an actual offer like this is: the card is scarce because it was retired early, once the error was discovered. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 t(m)ea(c)
"8711--Bird's-Eye View, Livingston, Mont. / 9A822-N" panorama of the town as it looked in 1939, linen from Robbins-Tillquist Co., back printing is off-center so some of the stamp box is at the left, writing on back, faint writing on front in the borders. $2.00 me
"Airplane View of Sylva, N.C." caption obliterated with printed circles & dots, unused linen from Asheville Post Card Co., fairly fresh. $3.75 en
"APPROVED BY / DUNCAN HINES // CASA LINDA MOTEL / U. S. 66, 1½ Miles East, Phone 773W / GALLUP, NEW MEXICO" with AAA symbol at upper left, and inked out caption (presumably erroneous or out-of-date) at upper right, unused Portraitone postcard with advert on back, long vertical crease through left side of card. Bet there are not too many of these! $4.50 n(g)rem
"Bee Rock Tunnel - 3-C-109 / Shortest Railroad Tunnel In The World - Big Stone Gap, Va." sepia-tone real photo postcard mailed 1957 at Olinger Virginia (2 different cancels, plus an older Bailey VA. postal marking), slight curl to the paper, paper clip indent at top center with a little rust on the back. A rare postcard, probably because there are 2 inaccuracies in the caption: located in Appalachia Virginia, not Big Stone Gap, the tunnel is actually the world's second shortest railroad tunnel--as any resident of Crandull Tennessee could tell you! When we searched the Internet, we found no other offers, present or past, and no one was even exhibiting it. $10.00 v(a)se
"Bellevue Methodist Episcopal Church." in Ohio, black & white postcard with blue caption & undivided back, mailed there 1907 (stamp removed), noticeable corner & edge wear. At first glance it appears as if the background sky consists of clouds or is a map; however, the map-like printing occurs over the church as well--so this is a printing error. We doubt that many were sold; and we doubt even more that many of those were actually used. An oddity for the advanced Bellevue collector. $13.00 oea
"Bethehem(sic) - General view" real photo, unused, circa 1915 judging by slight oxidation. $5.00 pe
"Birthday Greetings" signed art showing a child with a bunch of flowers, a country scene in the background panels; unused postcard, paper browning with age especially near the edges, soft corners. No you are not seeing double; this is a printing error from the publisher Gartner & Bender in Chicago, with the black color misregistered. $4.00 ecba
"CAIRO. - The Vergin's(sic) Tree at Matarich." sepia-tone on yellowish paper from M. Castro, unused, one serrated edge (from booklet), minor edge wear. Virgin's is misspelled. $2.50 e
"Canal of Gothenburg, Sweden / Harbor at Gothenburg, Sweden" unused multiview in color, numbered 82 on back, tiny corner bend, minor wear at bottom corners, toned back. View of canal has unintended leaning tower effect. $3.50 se
"Casino, Belle Isle, Detroit, Mich. / 7158" showing its exterior with people nearby; unused white-border era post card with noticeably misregistered colors (most noticeable at the left & right edges of the image) due to an error at the printer. Presumably not too many of these saw the light of day. $5.00 em(b)
"CHATEAU-GONTIER (Mayenne) - Avenue d'Angers et Rue de Raxilly Edit. P. Jacqueline, Château-Bontier" including a public area in France where wash was hung out to dry, black & white, fairly fresh. The postcard is not quite square, nor is its printed image. $3.00 fe
"Christmas / Greetings" embossed winter scene on artist palette surrounded by holly, mailed circa 1915. Silver color off by about 3 / 5-inch. $5.00 ec
"COLISEUM AT Indiana STATE FAIR GROUNDS DIANAPOLIS(sic), IND.--39" error--missing IN in city name, unused linen with good color from De Wolf News, toned lower right back corner. Presumably not too many were printed! $3.00 ie
"CONDRECOURT (Meuse) -- La Ferme de Ruyère" with misspelling in caption as indicated, black & white post card with green back, one serrated edge (from booklet), toned back, unusual subject matter. The town name is actually Gondrecourt. $7.50
"CORNELIUS VANDERBILT HOUSE, NEWPORT, R. J." J for I in caption (presumably not printed again), color from Bosselman, undivided back postcard with glitter added, writing on back, writing on front, light toning near some edges., light album marks at back corners $4.25 rgbe+
"CRAWFORD NOTCH from Mt. Willard, / showing Old Willey House" postcard in color, circa 1915 but mailed much later from New Ipswich New Hampshire, lightly toned both sides. Back oddly mismatched with advertising for a New York hotel. $2.25 n(c)e
"DEEP SEA FISHING $3.00 / BAIT AND HANDLINES FREE / OCEAN CITY YACHT BASIN " monochromatic blue postcard picturing the boat Pisces at Ocean City (Worcester County) Maryland, unused, overinking error during printing transferred spots to back & front sky, small scrape on right front edge. $4.25 mfse
"Elephant's Head, / Gate of Crawford Notch." circa 1915 postcard but mailed much later, back (Times Square New York restaurant text) mismatched with front, top edge uneven (probably trimmed, but still about full size). As is. $2.00 n(c)ree
"FRANKLIN COLLEGE CHAPEL / Franklin Indiana 46131" exterior, chrome with printer's annotation to remake (a blue spot appeared on the front), paperclip mark on back. Undoubtedly unique. $4.00 iec
"G. B. Ser. A 233" uncaptioned front in monochromatic green shows a Norwegian church from a distance, card badly miscut at printers shows part of the different cards above it & at the left of it, back printing offset like the front, minor edge wear. Odd that this error survives; apparently the printer did not bother to caption it. $5.00 ne
"Gibraltar. Sorruya's(sic) Ramp" showing many people, color post card from V. B. Cumbo, much toning along back edges, one corner badly creased, corner wear & rounding. Despite the spelling in the caption, a sign plainly reads Serruya's Ramp. $2.75 ge
"Gibraltra(sic) The Commercial Mole / No. 20 J. Cumbo, Gibraltar" black & white on unused undivided back postcard, light toning along one front edge, corner wear & rounding. $5.00 ge
"Great Smoky Mountain(sic) National Park" error in park name as indicated (should be plural), unused postcard made in Switzerland, couple short stray marks on the back. In North Carolina. $1.25 ne
"GREETINGS FROM CANTON, S.D." humorous & erroneous generic showing bathers at oceanside (the Big Sioux cannot possibly be as wide as shown), unused Plastichrome® made in USA, brownish paper on back. $2.25 se. Generic post cards explained.
"High School, Corning, Ohio 5391" sepia-tone post card with red caption mailed circa 1910 (stamp damaged) to Columbus Ohio, minor corner & edge wear. Printer error stacked the postcards before the green ink on the back was completely dry; so 'Post Card' shows in reverse printing in the front sky. The error may also explain why this postcard is seldom seen or offered, because others might have been worse & thrown away. $8.50 o(c)e
"Hönningen am Rhein." with a steamship passing the town, incompletely colored (missing blue water) postcard due to an error at the printers; name written in back address area, minor wear to 2 corners, back paper starting to show its circa-1910 age. The town on the Rhine River in the Rhineland-Palatinate is also known as Bad Hönningen am Rhein. $5.00 egs(r)
"[HOTEL DE VILLE]" with caption taken from the city hall itself somewhere in France, circa 1920 black & white carte postale with green back, imperfectly rectangular with caption at top most cut off. Full-size so printing a printing error. A collector, faced with the problem of a too-tall card, would have tried to cut the blank bottom off, rather than the informative caption at the top. $2.25 e
"HOTEL LINCOLN / 44th to 45th STREETS at 8th AVENUE / NEW YORK 19, N. Y." advertising postcard mismatched erroneously to a wintry agricultural scene, mailed 1960 at East Burke VT, small corner creases. Seeing is believing! $3.75 en(n)

"Ohio Byway / Jefferson Township Scenic Byway" unused continental from a photo by L. Dellovade, near mint. We consider this post card an error because it does not specify which Jefferson township in Ohio: Adams County, Ashtabula County, or Brown County! (2 available) $1.25 each oep
"JUBILÄUMS-AUSSTELLUNG IN PRAG 1908" art in color depicting a castle with large birds flying & perched nearby, toned postcard back has partial misprints of 2 other images in black & white, a lot of wear at 2 opposite corners. $2.75 ce8e

"LOOKING AT DOWNTOWN SKYLINE FROM UNDER BROOKLYN BRIDGE, NEW YORK CITY / 14 K4808" unused rectangular post card miscut a the printers so as to remove about half the caption. Presumably not too many of these saw the light of day. $3.75 en(n)
"Looking East from Washington Monument, Washington, D. C." circa 1915 post card, published by W. B. Garrison Ins. (their number 21032 on back), unused, couple small spots on back may be from the printing process itself, good edges. Full-size but badly miscut so that the central image is not parallel to the borders. $3.00 ed
"MA772:--PILOT MOUNTAIN BY MOONLIGHT NEAR MOUNT AIRY, N. C. 48031" with first-printed caption inked out by the printer in the top margin, unused linen postcard with tiny ding in one edge, otherwise fairly fresh. Such cards would be used as a stop-gap measure until the right ones appeared. $3.50 en(p)mm
"Main Street, Looking North, East Greenwich, R. I." including the Herman N. Silverman shoe store at the left, unused linen with botched printing -- smeared ink on back & front printed on the failed backside of another card that was too lightly printed. Weird. $5.00 rme

"Metropolitan Life Insurance Building / New York City" sepia-tone within embossed border, miscut so that top & bottom borders are adjacent at top, corner crease, corner & edge wear, very late usage at Dale. $2.50 ne
"Mikoyan-Gurevich MIG-15 'Fagot' / Engine: VK-1 of 6,000 lbs. thrust" and more pertinent information on back, unused chrome from Mastercraft Printers, front colors so misregistered as to create a blurry impression everywhere. This is the plane flown by a defecting North Korean pilot in 1953. $5.00 ena(m)
"Miner's Cabin in Winter Time, Y.T." in Yukon Territory, black & white from Zaccarelli's Fruit Book & Stationery Store in Dawson, trivial wear at one corner, toning along one back edge. Premature stacking of cards caused partial transfer of front design to back. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as a full-size & enhanced 72-dpi scan in .jpg or .tif format. $1.50 eywm
"MO-3 'MUNICIPAL BUILDING', MORRISTOWN, TENN. / E-6589" unused linen with back double printed, fresh appearance, good edges. $3.75 et

"Ngaere / Gardens / A. Truelove / Proprietor" black & white post card with red caption printed twice--lower right corner did not work, so second time in the sky for legibility; unused, made in Germany.

"NIMES -- Les Trois Piliers Romains A. R." including a streetcar with PICON advertising on its front, black & white post card with green back from booklet, mailed there 1918 to New York City, much corner & edge wear. In France.

"OLD FAITHFUL GEYSER, YELLOWSTONE PARK. HAYNES-PHOTO. Made in Germany" black & white on undivided back, writing on back, lightly toned back, mild corner & edge wear.

"Parc de VERSAILLES. - Le Bassin de Latone un jour de Grandes Eaux / The Basin of Latona a day of the great Waters" unused black & white carte postale with green back, perforated at a diagonal in error before being placed into a booklet. Back shown so the error is more apparent. $3.00 ef(v)

"Roma - Piazza Bocca della Verità. Tempio di Vesta / 82 C.J.V." black & white cartolina postale, light album marks at the corners, good edges. The caption is mistaken: the Temple of Hercules is shown; its shape is similar to the Temple of Vesta, located elsewhere in the Roman Forum. $3.75 ie
"Soldier's Memorial Building, Conservatory of Music and Music Hall, Cincinnati" erroneously captioned & clearly showing The College of Music of Cincinnati at the center, per its readable sign; Kraemer Art post card numbered 1450 on back, printed in Germany, part of their Cincinnati Special Series Art Cards copyrighted 1908.

It is unlikely that many were saved once the error was noticed. $5.00 nse*
"The Paseo, Kansas, Mo." with a large & well-kept garden prominent; incomplete caption should specify Kansas City; undivided back post card, writing both sides. An odd error to leave out half the name of the city; we speculate that not many were printed or sold after the error was found. $3.25 m(k)ge
