"C White" Signature Variations
I'm aware of two varieties (so far) in the "C White" artist's signature which appears on this card, as shown below. As you can see, the style of the signature is noticeably different for each. In both cases, the signature appears near the lower right corner of the card.

(as shown on the full size card, above)

MOST DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS: straight line to left of "C"; cross on "t" lines up with dot on "i" and angles ever so slightly down to right, but still above top of "e"; tail on "C" is close to bottom of "W" and terminates below the "W".


MOST DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS: straight line to left of "C"; cross on "t" angles ever so slightly down to left, pointing below dot on "i"; tail on "C" is well below bottom of "W" and terminates below the "i"; entire "White" portion of signature is condensed.
