THIS IS A "STOCK ITEM" AND I USE A "STOCK SCAN" FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES. THE QUALITY OF THE STAMP OR COVER YOU RECEIVE WILL MATCH (OR EXCEED!) THE WRITTEN DESCRIPTION, THOUGH IT MAY LOOK SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FROM THE ITEM IN THE SCAN.
UXC3/UPSS #SA3c2 THINNED LINE VARIETY MINT AIRMAIL POSTAL CARD
U.S. POSTAL STATIONERY - MINT POSTAL CARDS
Scott #UXC3. UPSS #SA3c2
5c Eagle with Border, "Thinned Dividing Line at Bottom" variety.
This variety is unlisted in Scott as a mint or used Postal Card, but well-known to specialized collectors who use the UPSS Postal Card Catalog.
Most collectors are familiar with the SA3c1, the BROKEN line variety, which is easy to spot and appears on many FDCs. The THINNED LINE variety (also from the first printing) is much more difficult to spot, and most of them were used on FDCs.
Unlike the Broken Line (at top) which is a radical break, the Thinned Line (at bottom) is a gradual tapering, with the line curving a bit to the left.
I have a few of these and some (but not all) of them have one other characteristic besides the thinned line; there's a patchwork of fine lines at the left (see scans #1 and #2) that appears almost as 2 dots.
It's listed and priced in the UPSS Postal Card Catalog at $50.00.
Mint, and in excellent condition.

If you buy several lots, please load up the Shopping Cart and pay ONCE, when you're finished ordering.
PLEASE DON'T PAY AFTER EACH LOT.
Postage for multiple lots is always discounted; you'll never pay more than the actual shipping charges.
If you're buying several lots and the eBay checkout system hands you a postage bill which is off the charts, you can either:
1. Request a total from me BEFORE you pay (in which case I can dig into their system and adjust the postage charge).... or
2. Just pay the whole thing, and when I fill your order, I'll adjust the charges and send you a refund.

ALL SMALL, "FLAT" SHIPMENTS - STAMPS, CINDERELLA ITEMS, POSTAL STATIONERY, Postal History and First Dav Covers - will be shipped in a _Calumet_ hard cardboard mailer. (See the scan at the right.) This mailer offers much greater protection than bubble wrap, and is only a little heavier and more costly to ship.
Larger items will be shipped in corrugated mailers.
If you buy several lots, the shipping charges will be reduced. See the WHITE PRINT above for details.
U.S. SHIPPING CHARGES for this item are $3.00 for a USPS First Class Package. Insurance is FREE.

$11.00 for an International First Class Package to Canada

$14.00 FOR AN INTERNATIONAL FIRST CLASS PACKAGE to the rest of the world.
A FINAL WORD - ABOUT MY SCANS: What you get will be BETTER than what you see! Computer scans often show darker or lighter areas which aren't on the actual item, and the larger the object to be scanned, the more areas will be affected. Plus, I scan using a "cover sheet" to hold the item in place, and the plastic cover can creates glare. And, I often use shortcuts because I just don't have the time to scan every item I sell; I sometimes have to recycle an old scan to illustrate a new item. ALWAYS GO WITH THE DESCRIPTION! Your item may look a LITTLE different from the scan, but it will match the description 100%.....and it will ALWAYS be a top-quality item. My feedback on EBAY speaks for itself.
