Default Authentic or Fake Ruth RPPC

My question is do you think the Ruth RPPC is from the 1920's (as the stamp box would indicate) or a reprint that is not from that era? I know there was a previous thread about a different Ruth RPPC, & there was some doubt about a portrait Ruth in that thread, that I have attached. I bought the postcard from a board member about 5 years ago, & the recent thread about Ruth RPPCs got me motivated to send it to SGC. They would not grade it, & the response I got from Sean at SGC was the following- "I just spoke to Bob Luce, Senior Grader. He said that he has a suspicion that the card may not be from that era based on the look and feel of the card. And we could not confirm the date". I now tend to agree based on some Net54 feedback & SGCs opinion, but would like a larger sample size from the numerous experts on N54. Also, is 5 years too long to get a refund or store credit in your opinion if a time frame for refunds was not stipulated? The seller is not returning my emails, but I do see him active on eBay (at least I think it is him). Your opinions will be greatly appreciated. I have owned a ton of prewar postcards, but very few real photo postcards, so I lack the expertise on them at this time. I suppose buying a huge lot of pre 1930 postcards on the cheap would be a good start in determining the proper look & feel of the paper. I will get around to that sometime soon Thank you!
