Availability Scale: We have loosely defined 4 categories of availability for classifying postcards in our collection. There are many degrees of availability within each main category and the opinion of availability is subjective. These 4 main categories have been created to convey to the reader the approximate availability of a postcard within our collection. The availability is subject to change as new research comes to light.

  • Common - A common postcard is one where many examples are known to exist. Most modern postcards are considered common due to the large numbers of cards published and distributed.
  • Uncommon - An uncommon postcard is one that does not surface often. There may be many examples of an uncommon card in circulation, but just not as readily available as a common card.
  • Scarce - A scarce postcard is one that is hardly ever seen outside of a few well known postcard collections such as The Southport Times' Collection, the New Hanover County Public Library's North Carolina Collection or the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's North Carolina Collection.
  • Rare - A rare postcard is a postcard where only 1 or 2 examples are known to exist. Cards in this category may not even exist in the largest and most complete collections. Cards in this category have extremely low publication rates and extremely low distribution rates, adding to the rarity of the card.
