Surprising that this handsome card has no name of the new school, nor its date of construction. It does show in the white writing at the bottom of the image, but it also states it in the upper right corner of the back where the stamp would be. Because it was never used you can esily read "This is a Genuine Photo." The upper right front corner shows a very tiny crese to the point. The card otherwide is loely and will arrive in a plastic sleeve. View more info
