I am working on our next auction (shameless plug) and I have a small lot of low grade Goudey Indians including 2 of Geronimo. One looks like most other Goudey Indians I have ever seen. The other has alost a glossy feel, and while it does exhibit significant surface wear the feel is entirely different then the normal matte feel of a Goudey card. I have no doubts about the cards authenticity. Print quality, size, stock and the back are all 100% normal, it's just the front of the card is really odd. I would normally just assume bleaching or cleaning (though why you'd bleach such a low grade card is beyond me) but that wouldn't explain the glossy feel of the card. Plus while some of the colors are indeed fainter, the feather is, if anything, more vibrant on the glossy card.

 

Thoughts?

One is from the series of 96, while the other is from the series of 48.  Could be a difference based on which wave it was released in.  Do you have any other "series of 48" cards in the lot?

OK Cool. I have series of 24, 48, 96 and 192 and now that you mention it the 48's do all have that somewhat slick feel to them. For some reason the Geronimo just jumped out at me, probably because it's the only one I had doubles of so the difference was side by side. I assume 24's are the least populous?

Thanks!

Series of 24 are tough but are not the least populous. That honor belongs to the low skip series of 288s.

NSB has an in-depth study of most of these actually, including some really deep dives.

The author Chris Watson is on this board as nscards. 
You could try messaging him or email him on the address in this thread from last year. He did have a few copies available - no idea if he still does.
