Manufacturer and details:
The four cards that have children obviously were a set or part of a set. They have "Series No. 5092" on one of them and "Series No. 5093" on the other three. All four of them have a trademark in bottom left corner on back that looks like someone standing up, leaning against a cylindrical column. The main issue with these four cards is that at some time, someone had them attached to each other or something else, as they all have ONE small hole in a corner of the card. I don't know if they were attached with a fastener at some time in the 1910's or if it occurred later. They could be used for craft items, if not added to a post card collection.
The card with the large gold harp says, "Let the golden harp play On St Patrick's Day". It is in better condition with only wear on corners. It has been mailed. It has a logo on the back consisting of a letter "G" inside a triangle..
The last card says, "The Dear Little, Sweet Little Shamrock of Ireland. Love, and Long Life to You! Keep Your Memory Green." On the back it has "St Patrick's Series No. 16". The front at bottom left has a circle with a "c" inside of it and a dot inside the "C". Next to that there is a triangle with a "N" inside. On the back under the location for a stamp is "COPR E. NASH".
* Post Card Grading Guide
I use a universal postcard grading system for grading the postcards I offer for sale. I have seen this system also used by the International Federation of Postcard Dealers. I have abbreviated and tried to simplify as much as possible.
MINT (M): Like new, unused. No marks, no creases, no writing, no postmark.
NEAR MINT (NM): Like MINT except there could be some light aging or slight discoloration from being in an album.
EXCELLENT (EX): Like MINT in that no bend, no creases, no rounded or blunt corners. Writing and postmarked on back is OK. NOTE: Before March 1, 1907 it was not allowed to write on the address side of postcards and so writing had to be done on the front side. Writing on the front side of these cards IS permissible.
VERY GOOD (VG): Corners a bit blunt or rounded. Undetectable crease or bend that does not distract from card.
GOOD (G): corners lightly blunt/rounded. Noticeable bends or creases.
FAIR (F): Card intact. Excess soils, stains, creases, writing, and/or cancellation affecting the picture.
POOR (P): Incomplete card and/or image seriously affected.
I attempt to photo both sides of every card and to describe as accurately as I can. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
** Shipping Notice: I offer 1st Class Package or Priority shipping. Keep in mind that Priority comes with insurance and 1st class does not, when making your shipping choice.
I ship postcards in a clear plastic sleeve and place in a rigid cardboard folder.
