Hello everyone…I hope you are having a great start to the Labor Day weekend!
I was on travel when I wrote the previous post, so I didn’t have access to my collection. When I got back, though, I was able to take a closer look at my postcards and found something a little odd.
NT0572 thru NT0575 are all animated cards with a similar design…a paper card with a smaller “Vari-Vue” card attached.
NT0572 (the one I posted on the other day) is of Mickey Mouse. If you look on Disneyland Postcards there are two of these shown…one with a black back, one with a blue back. But the card that sold on eBay, the one I posted on a couple days ago, was different. It had “G-1” and “20¢” in the stamp box. So…I will call that card NT0572b.
NT0573 and NT0573A (Mickey and Pluto) are both listed in the Nickel Tour. But the 20¢ stamp box thing is not mentioned. Disneyland Postcards shows a number of variations of this card…and does show NT0573A with a “G-3” and the “20¢” price in the stamp box. There are other variations of this card as well…one with a Vari-Vue that is too small (NT0573Aa…pictured here) and one with no Vari-Vue card on it at all!
NT0574 (Chip & Dale) does not appear to have any variants on Disneyland Postcards other than blue/black text thing…but I have a “G-2” variant card in my collection, and I will call that NT0574b. It’s the only version I have of that card, and is pictured here.
NT0575 (Mermaid with Donald Duck) exists in variations similar to NT0573. (Blue/black text, G-4 and 20¢ price in stamp box). I can’t find my versions of these cards at the moment…so no pictures!
So…there you have it…a brief (albeit a little confusing!) primer on this set of four Vari-Vue cards! I hope you all found this useful.
Until next time…
