Error 1

Another variation I collect is more of an error than an intentional change to the appearance of an image. These are misprints or defects in the production of the postcard themselves. I don't intentionally seek out these cards; they just present themselves when I'm looking through the thousands of cards I go through each year. An example of this would be Nickel Tour 1189, card 0111-1000, Mr. Lincoln - Disneyland U.S.A.; here's the way the card appeared off the racks.

However, some slipped by as this one did.

You'll notice the image is flipped with the blue field on the right side of the flag instead of the left. You'll also notice the American flag is on the left side of the stage instead of the right where it should be.
