Some of the following samples may belong to the previous described ‘Publisher Tricks’ type. Many other pairs, or as I tend to call them ‘Postcard Twins’, have an ordinary background. I have put together following main categories:
The same postcard design/view Art reproduction etc was published by another firm. It may be done in a different process and colours, same size or other. In some cases the reprint may be a illegal one, means without permission. These cards usually show not publisher imprint.
A publisher reprints one of his previously published card with only some minor changes, eg. removing or adding people, houses or other minor parts of the image.
The identical view was published with a different caption / in a other language. The card bears the same or a new number.
If you have other “Twins” please let me know. – A Special Thank You goes to Dutch collector Oene Klijnsma for kindly providing some of cards illustrated!
