Question First Sanke Card: Looking for Opinions

Hello,

I bought my first Sanke postcard and it arrived today and I am looking for opinions as to whether it is original or not. I wanted to get one of Manfred von Richthofen, but I did not want to spend an outrageous amount, which I did not. I understand this is the memorial type with the black outline, which is not too even all the way around. I noticed this feature in other cards and thought it may be normal for some of these types of cards. There is some slivering to the black outline (it looks lighter on the left and top from the angle and lighting when I took the photo) and a couple small places of the photo from age I am guessing. Hopefully I found a good one!

Nice original with the memorial black border and Todd cross after his name. MvR cards are, obviously, one of the more desired cards.

yes good one - early Reichsmarschall Maier cards are more rarer, than Richthofen.

Thank you for the replies. I’m glad I bought this one, I was a little hesitant at first!

I can imagine a Goering card would probably be harder to find and more expensive than Richthofen.

Yes Goring cards are one of the most expensive of the Sanke series. Off the top of my head I believe Richthofen had more different cards in all of the companies (Sanke, Liersch & Rothberg) than any other pilot.
