The photo appears to have been touched up with a brush. Printing is a bit crude.

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.

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