Description

By J. Beagles & Co. This postcard cites him as king, and is therefore a lifetime issue. A google search revealed a version of this card with the legend describing him as “Former King.”

When I was in Europe in 2017 I saw shops selling antique postcards in a number of cities close to the rail station where the rents were high. Postcards are apparently bigger than coins over there.

The term “document” implies some official status applied to a piece of paper or non-paper equivalent (digital, cuneiform tablet, etc.). Any other piece of paper that might be of interest to collectors for some reason can be classified as “paper ephemera.” Could be a product wrapper, or a check (cheque). Or a magazine, or a postcard.

Over the decades I’ve been selling collectibles my market has been about 97% coins, 2% paper money, 1% everything else.
