  • The clarity isn't that great but when you factor in that it is of an event from 110 years ago - pretty good really.  Can't think that there are many other copies of the actual launching that have survived, so it could be quite rare.
  • Please note that the majority of the cards are over 50 years old and as such, are sold AS IS. Tears will be noted but it would be too timely to note each fault on every card. If condition is important to you - contact us with our number in the title & what it is that you would like to know or what it is that you would like pictured more closely.
  • Because of the age of the cards - they are noted as being USED - no matter if they are written on or not.
