Does anyone on the forum know how to determine if a 1911 T201 Fitzpatrick/Killian is an original or a reprint? I'm considering purchasing one from a local shop but am suspicious due to the surprisingly good condition of the corners for a 101 yr old card. No creases other than the card fold line. Crease has been folded at one time but no tears on edges. Paper stock is thin and tan in color. Picture color good Stats on rear are about 90/10 off center. Books for $150. Seller asking $100 but has agreed to take $80. Factory#649 NY. Any tips on authenticating card? Thanks.
