This postcard was produced by the Curt Teich & Company. They utilized a variety of processes, but the most common was a halftone lithographic process. They had elaborate numbering systems for their postcards. The numbers also often designated production processes. After 1930, card numbers began with a number corresponding to the last digit of the year it was published in. This was followed by a letter series for the decade. The beginning number for this card is 0 and the series code for the 1950s was C-H. That indicates this card was produced in 1950 and used the Colortone process.
