Size: 7" x 4"
Copyright Date: 1882 (see note, below)

"Behold, I show you a Mystery!" I. Cor. XV; 51.
Prang - Easter card

Back - "EASTER"

Reverse(s): Poison In The Cup ('3b') (overprinted as shown)

NOTE: Although this card bears an 1882 copyright date, it's likely that the actual Arbuckle Bros. usage is from sometime later, as the Arbuckle company apparently just overprinted the backs of existing supplies of the cards. In fact, since the card shown above bears the "Poison In The Cup!" affidavit, it clearly must have been issued no earlier than 1888.
