Default Are W573s thin and slick?

Just got one in the mail today and doesnt feel "right" but Ive never had one in hand before. Seems really flimsy and slick. Thanks.

Looks fine to me, they are definitely on a lighter stock, can't remember if they had a gloss applied or not.

Don't know about this issue, but many of the period photoengravings (which this is) had slick/glossy fronts.

Default slick

I bought some uncut strips about 30 years ago and they are somewhat slick with very thin stock. Not what youd think of as a "card" but thicker than paper, maybe kind of like a slick filing card. Take this for what its worth......

Yes...this card is one I sold. It is an authentic card. W573's are commonly found in a very thin paper, and nicer shape ones seem to still have the gloss. I have plenty that are not glossy, but these are also ones that have been roughed up some. W573's can also be found in a much thicker card stock (about 3X to 4X), and these thicker ones I have seen seem to have much fuller borders and thus larger card size. The thicker ones are much less frequently seen.
