Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are all the cards you sell original?

Nearly all of the cards we sell are original vintage postcards.  Most reproductions will be noted in the title or description. 


Why show "Sold" cards on the site if they are not available for purchase?

We show sold cards for posterity because it is often useful for collectors to see as many cards of a particular topic or series as possible.  Also, we offer scans of many of the older cards for purchase.

When viewing category pages and search results with the default sort/relevancy sold cards will always be shown at the end of the list.  When searching, the default is to show only "Available Products", meaning originals.


High Resolution Images and Scans

We can provide 300 to 1200 dpi images of individual cards in the public domain for a nominal fee.
Scan purchases are downloadable immediately after checkout with a download link sent via email.
We will provide high-res scans for non-profit use in exchange for a photo credit.
Please contact us if you wish to purchase scans.
