Reprint cards of the M101-4/5 sets have the large white space between the photo and the black border as seen on the McGraw shown. Of course evil no-gooders muss up these reprints so as to look older and snare a few of us into trading green bills for them.

wow the image is much clearer and card stock glossier on the real one, and the borders. Thanks for sharing.

I've been wondering, and this seems like as good an excuse as any:

If you get an older color card under a loupe, you can tell whether it's a reprint by looking at the printing technique. (So I learned from our own David C.) Color half-tone lithography is sure sign of fakeness. What about with black and white cards? Is there something about old printing techniques that would be a giveaway under a loupe?

I think the dot pattern, and where they are located (generally not in the borders), is what I look for in black and white cards. The fluorescence issue would be what I would look for also. The paper stock has to be period and is often a dead giveaway. A lot of times fakes will feel rough and not smooth (the way hundred year old paper should feel.)
