Think it's Conlon, taken moments before this photo...

Before you send the link, are you fairly confident that the person who contacted you isn't the one who made it? I never want to help people make something more convincing.

Here is a Conlon Collection 1984 postcard from eBay. I'm betting our specimen here is a closer relation than it would care to admit.

The image is so grainy. It looks second hand to me.

I'll get back to him that the postcard appears to be a copied image from the Conlon Collection postcard set adhered to an old postcard. I'll also send him the image of the Conlon postcard.

He may have had this card offered to him for purchase and contacted me for a opinion before going forward and buying. I don't know, I'll ask.

All - Thanks for all the help....nice job.

I almost hate to mention it, but I got fooled and stuck with a Wolverine News PC counterfeit Cobb over a year ago; it also fooled a number of PC experts. When Scott at SGC determined it was bogus, he said something about the pixels being wrong, something I never would have picked up. Point is there are many high quality counterfeits out there and as printing technologies continue to advance they will become harder to spot.
