At the Chicago ANA show I obtained a number of nice souvenir cards, including this one. It's an SO-11 from the 1980 IPMC show in Memphis. But something's odd about it. Let's see who spots it first.

You can probably figure it out by checking the SCCS Image Gallery ... http://souvenircards.org/gallery/gallery.html

I like the note better with the red overprints of "C" and "100"

You got it! It's missing the red underprint. Here's what it should look like:

But a look at the back explains things. This was actually a review specimen of the black plate.

There are a number of early ABNC cards that can be found in specimen form. Most often these were marked with punched lettering. Here's an example of a specimen of SO-24, with the specimen marking in the lower right. It's dated about a month before the show date. I also picked this one up in Chicago.
