Don't post much, but thought this was worthy.[/quote]

Great Cobbs. I can't get over how these two cards have nearly IDENTICAL wear on the corners. It's almost like they have traveled the earth together, one atop the other, for 110 years.

It amazes me how a card could get that much corner wear and have no creases. Seriously how is it even possible.

Cards in a stack, wrapped with a rubber band, get handled in stack form for 100 or so years. The corners get rubbed off, but the faces stay intact.

Beautiful Cobbs, by the way!

Sliding around in a cigar (or other) box, drawer, etc might also yield corners like those.

Very thankful that Louieman was willing to part with this George C. Miller Gehringer. Also picked up my first T205 and Tattoo Orbit this month.

Great pickups Sam. That T205 Cobb has always been one of my favorites.

Nice O'Hara Ed. I can't tell from the scan but is it possible that it's an ink
blob from the printing. I've seen them on cards before.

Here's a Bell and chase with a few in the same place.

Thanks, Pat. It is a drop of ink, probably from a fountain pen. Period, but not original to the card.
