UX27 was a work horse postal card and was printed on cream, off-white, various shades of buff, light buff, dark buff, yellow, and canary. In 1916, due to the war, UX27C and UX27D were produced. Both used a grayish white card stock. The UX27C used the same stamp impression as the normal UX27 while the UX27D used a recut impression especially noticeable in the hair on the back of the head. Your card might be a UX27C but it is difficult to tell from a scan. If you think you have a UX27C then send it off for certification.

I have several copies of UX27C and they are all preprinted. Some are back only, some are front and back. UX27C was sold only in sheets for the convenience of printers.

Thank you for detail information this is very helpful. Who would you recommend for certification? The Philatelic Foundation NY?

I am partial to APEX for US postal stationery but then I am one of the APEX examiners. Many of the PF examiners are are also APEX examiners. The choice is yours. I don't know how they compare timewise. I usually have items back in two days.
