Titled - OAKS HOTEL, IOWA'S FINEST SUMMER RESORT, CLEAR LAKE, IOWA.
This is a nice C T AMERICAN ART BY BAKER BROS ENGRAVING of Omaha branded, UNmailed POST CARD of the huge old hotel with wide porches. To the right the Clear lake and Mason City Electric Trolley Cars. Excellent UNused shape. Typical corner rounding and edge wear, no major faults.
Due to eBay's new policy we must call cards new or used on the listing page, no choice. While its hard to call a 100 yr old survivor new, if it is not postmarked, it will show new on the listing page, if postmarked, it will be called used. WE DO NOT SELL REPRODUCTIONS, SO IF IT IS 100 YEARS OLD AND CALLED NEW, IT IS INDEED, UNMAILED, NOT NEW! EBAY ERRORS IN FORCING ANTIQUE DEALERS to rate antique items like they are clothing, new or used.
Card shape descriptions are done to the Post Card trade standards: Mint is hard to find; Near Mint has very little if any wear; Excellent allows some wear and minor soiling; Very Good is better than average; Good is basically average; Fair is to allow more wear than normal; Poor is obvious. We try to call out any tears, minor wrinkles are on most any card. Creased means has been folded or badly bent. Cut down cards are hardly ever sold by us, if so will be told as such. Repros - destroyed, unless historic value - life is just to short for cheats!
