Default Question: Trimmed or lucky find?

I don't often deal in good looking cards, I'm more of the dog chewed on aesthetic, but came across this in an antique store, and when I pulled it out of the old plastic case it was in, I was SHOCKED at how nice it appeared to be. I put it next to a couple of other T206's that I have and it seems to measure right, BUT, the print seems to be slightly askew, so I wasn't sure if this was because of a bad trim, print error, or something else. All opinions welcome!

Looks slightly diamond cut but the borders are parallel in their askewness (like that word? It's mine I just invented it) so it may be good. It looks like there's not as much combined border as I would like top to bottom, but that's not a perfect tell with T206. Also I see a wrinkle up from the bottom border which might serve to curb your enthusiasm somewhat.

Not trimmed. A very nice VG or VG+ due to the wrinkle at the bottom. Great looking card.

It is not trimmed. Diamond Cuts do hurt my head if I look at them too long , though.
