You all know that it was a Polish anarchist, Leon Czolgosz, who shot McKinley at the Pan-American Exposition on Sept 6 1901. McKinley died eight days later of gangrene caused by the gunshot wounds.

I'd like to note that it's incorrect to refer to Czolgosz as "Polish" which he was not. He was born in the U.S., and that makes him 100% American. His ancestry does go back to Poland as all of our ancestry goes back to somewhere else, but I'm not sure why his ancestry is in any way relevant. We don't refer to Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth, as British -- or James Garfield's assassin, Charles Guiteau, as French even though both men's parents were of those nationalities Both of them were also born in the U.S., so that makes them as American as apple pie. Just want to make it clear that identifying people by ancestral nationality is not helpful or useful. Czolgosz was a political anarchist and pretty much out of his mind. That does seem relevant.

As to the postal card, I do love the "garbage card" name. In fact, I think McK's portrait on that card which was withdrawn because he wife didn't like the picture (why would they not ask her first?) was the better portrait, and the one they eventually did issue just makes him look fat. Which he was, of course, since that seemed to be the fashion at the time.

The reference to "garbage card" doesn't mean anyone doesn't like the card, it refers to the source. All known full-face McKinley cards were used by a garbage company, hence the term.

There is at least one full-face McKinley card without the garbage company preprinted form. I've seen one in another collector's possession.

Battlestamps - is it an actual issued postal card, or a proof postal card?

This I do not know offhand. I would have to ask him, but he knows his U.S. postal stationery well.

I know it's a term but I don't like the terms darkie or honky either. I think that it's a postal card.

It's a "garbage card" if I'm buying, a "full-face McKinley" if selling.

Technically, all mint full-face McKinley cards are proofs except for the small handful that were liberated from the contractor's premises before having PROOF printed on them. Only the one box, all of which were printed for reports from the various garbage barges, was actually issued. The spurious mint cards continue to be listed by tradition.
